Friday 29 – 31 July
IIf you’re dreaming of an affordable and inclusive weekend music festival in the area, you might want the scoop on Fader Fest.
From punk rock and folk to hip-hop and EDM, this West Springfield festival has it all. At $15 a ticket, you can enjoy a weekend of local musicians, artists, fluid art performances, and vendors from around the Erie area.
What started as a garden party in 2017 has become an opportunity for artists, musicians and art lovers to come together and harmonize.
Kenneth Davidson, host of this unique event, explains why he and his parents, Randy and Kim Davidson, opened up their space and time for Fader Fest: “I’m doing this festival to provide a safe space for local musicians and people to gather and share what they like with others. I love sharing music. As a newbie local, it’s hard to be reserved and get your name out there, so I want to help with that. It’s that’s why it’s so cheap, so everyone has a chance to have that experience.”
Friday and Saturday offer music and DJ performances well into the night, while Sunday offers a peaceful open mic for anyone to test their mettle to take to the stage to end the weekend. If you get hungry all weekend long, the “Tha Flavor Bucket” food truck will be by your side.
Doors 3 p.m., music 5 p.m. // 13458 West Lake Rd., West Springfield, PA // $15, tickets available at Full Melt Exotic Glass // For full lineup and information see the event on facebook.com
