SAWFest, the annual music festival, takes place on the grounds of the Salem Art Works in Salem on Saturday. It kicks off at 11:30am and goes all day long. It’s a rain-or-shine event, and free camping is available on site. Food and beverages will also be available throughout the fest.
Among the performers slated to take the stage this year are Eastbound Jesus (the winners of SPAC’s Battle of the Bands earlier this summer), reggae singer Kalvin Kristi, Noel Thompson, Lovesick Nomads and Nathan Knowles.
Suggested donation for admission is $15 at the gate.
