“Through the Black Angels music, and the opportunity that opened to start our own festival, we’ve been able to host a global community of artists and music fans. Our mission is to be a platform where the music and art they love can thrive. It’s a simple idea – we’re here to give the people what they want – a place to see their favorite bands and discover new music. The people who support indie music and art – this is their festival, we’re here to make it as great as we can,” says co-founder/director Rob Fitzpatrick
