The already massive line up will have two more headliners announced early next year.
Festival goers will be enthralled by the unique curated experiences that are guaranteed to stimulate all senses that can be heard, felt, seen and embodied throughout the festival. “Every year we sit down as a team, and brainstorm how we can continue to connect with the fans and create an original experience.” says Dan Sheehan, festival producer. “It’s not only in the overall big details like ground breaking performances and collaborations that fans have come to enjoy but it’s also the little details like partnering with local small businesses. I’m really excited to once again be bringing a special experience the fans will love.” In addition to mainstages, the festival offers local food and beverage vendors, captivating art installations, on-site greening initiatives, community focused nonprofits and intimate pop-up performances.
