48 Hour Music Festival

INFO
Saturday, August 15 2015
8:30PM
 
 

The 6th 48 Hour Music Festival has descended upon us in its first ever summer edition. Thirty adventurous musicians from local bands of all genres will step out of their comfort zones and be randomly shuffled into 6 supergroups on Thursday, August 13. No members of these newly formed bands are allowed to have previous musical history with one another. From there, each band has exactly 48 hours to construct and practice a 25 minute set of material, culminating in the Saturday performance. This entirely new pool of local talent features members of Mouth WashingtonSouth ChinaStone ToolsS.S. CretinsContrappostoWaranimalThe Last SipBabe, and more! Each year, the 48 Hour Music Fest has proven to be one of the most exciting and creative nights of the year. We’ve had several sell-out shows, so we highly recommend you grab your tickets in advance!
