Maha Music Festival, coming on Aug. 13, has chosen a new spot to set up shop: Stinson Park at Aksarben Village.
It’s a pretty sweet spot and its location in the middle of town (as well as within walking distance of bars/restaurants, etc.) will be pretty nice.
I think it will also give Maha more of a rock festival feel since it will be on a big, grassy location. All that parking won’t hurt either.
Not much else will change for the festival. Guided By Voices, Cursive, Matisyahu, J. Mascis, The Reverend Horton Heat and Envy Corps will still headline.
The local lineup is also (mostly) set: Somasphere, Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship, The So-So Sailors and The Machete Archive. One more band will be chosen by voting at this weekend’s OEAA Summer Showcase in Benson.
Tickets already purchased are, of course, good for the new venue. More details about setup, etc. are forthcoming.
