Besides all the rockin out’, the music and arts fest — which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year — has planned intriguing side entertainment. The Living Altar is a multimedia art project from queer and trans witches of Romani heritage; local dancer Ruby Mimosa leads burlesKARAOKE; and there’s going to be a cat circus, because why not?
Early bird tickets are sold out, but regular, on-time bird tickets are available now. The festival’s new organizers said they’re trying to keep prices down this time around — one-day tickets are $65, while two-day passes are $110.
