Featuring more than 60 musical acts and 25 visual artists, the sixth 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.
The festival kicks off with a parade featuring the Hungry March Band from the Seven21 Media Center at 6pm Friday (October 9). Among the many other activities throughout the weekend are a late-night literary SALO+N and CO+LLAGE Cafe; unlimited EXPLO+RE classes in yoga, dance, meditation and sound healing; a Wellness EXPO+ and Conference (featuring topics of particular interest to Hudson Valley residents and/or the creative community); and bike rides for all skill levels.
Among the headlining performers at the fest are Nicole Atkins, Screaming Females, Corey Glover (of Living Colour), Widowspeak, And the Kids, a reunion of the Bongos and such returning acts as Nicole Atkins (performing solo) and the Local 518’s own the Parlor.
