FEST: O+ Festival in Kingston, 10/7-9/16

October 6th, 2016, 1:00 pm by Greg

Featuring more than 60 musical acts and 30 visual artists, the seventh annual O+ Festival will be taking place this weekend at a number of different locations throughout Kingston. It’s a unique festival of art, music and wellness, wherein artists barter their contributions directly for medical, dental and other health services from art-loving health care providers.

Saturday headlining acts include singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sondre Lerche at the Old Dutch Church and guitarist-composer Kaki King (with her visually stunning “The Neck is a Bridge to the Body” show) in the back room of BSP Lounge.
