Festivals create a melting pot of musical genres and Summer Fest is no different. From indie to heavy metal to hip-hop to electronic to folk, just about every genre is covered. But that’s not all the festival offers! There will also be Art, Shopping, Food, Drinks, great opps for people watching and VIP tents for the fancy pants. Not a balla? No worries, $75 gets you covered for the weekend. Looking to get some good karma and some good music? Fill out a Volunteer Application! Any way you do it, you just need to be there. So, grab your sunscreen, umbrella, bathing suit and get ready for two days of a killer lineup!
