Festival Fever: Freedom of Expression Music Fest @ West Mountain Ski Center, 9/20-22/13
The three-day fest kicks off on Friday (September 20), and more than 65 acts will keep the music pumpin’ non-stop day and night all weekend long. Among the headliners are Designer Drugs, Etc!Etc!, Kennedy Jones, HeRobust and Styles&Complete.
While the primary focus is on EDM, FoE also stretches out musically to include everything from the “sci-fi Middle Eastern fusion” sounds of Consider the Source to the reggae grooves of Roots of Creation, from the hip-hop of Tell a Tall Tale to such Nippertown favorites as Timbre Coup, Formula 5 and Citizen Zen.
The fest also promises live glass blowing, a hookah lounge, live painting, an art gallery and “more activities than you can shake a stick at.”
Three-day all-fest tickets are still available for $95.
