Once again, we are gearing up for another big weekend here in downtown Springfield. As you all should know, The Skatalites from Jamaica play here for free in three days out on the Y-Block downtown as part of the Levitt AMP Concert Series. That is this Thursday night. Then Friday and Saturday night is the Legacy of Giving Music Festival going on downtown for the fifteenth consecutive year if you count its predecessor music festival, SOHO which started in 2004. Legacy of Giving, or LOG Fest has their own website where you can check out a list of bands right here. We’ve found their schedules for Friday and Saturday posted above might be the best way to figure out what bands are playing where on each of the five stages at what times on Friday and Saturday. We got that from the festival’s facebook page. We hear there is a total of 67 bands (we’ll believe that number without trying to count all of those).
This year Dumb Records and Bread Blasters is involved with one of the official aftershows Saturday night, which is also in conjunction with the Creative Earth Art Show happening at our space this Saturday, June 8th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Find more info as far as artists involved right here. We do have poetry and musical acts from Fuzzlove, Cody Jones, Hope Fiend, and Shatriya Smith. The event is also free!
Find a facebook event for all of Legacy of Giving right here. By the way, admission for the festival is only $5 and goes to a bunch of different local charities! All ages of course!
