Pine Fever, Short Moscato, Chae Hawk, Vinnie DeRosa and Billie Essco are among the more than 30 musical acts just announced to perform at the second Beau Fleuve Music and Arts Festival, set for 11 am. Aug. 26 in Silo City (85 Silo City Row).
Dubbed the "Ultimate Sunday Funday" by the festival organizers and curators, the one-day celebration and multi-cultural experience of Buffalo's vast arts scene has since graduated from its inaugural venue of Buffalo RiverWorks to the industrial playground that is Silo City.
With a musical lineup as diverse and eclectic as the festival - among the styles you'll hear are hip-hop, EDM, R&B, rock and jazz - local music fans should have little trouble finding plenty of ear candy throughout the day within the grain elevator walls, while the ever-popular silent disco will provide a volume-controlled dance party.
Beau Fleuve, which is translated to beautiful river (Buffalo's origin name), also will feature art installations from more than 20 curators; screenings of short films, docs and music videos from the Bak USA Film Festival; comedy hosted by Terre King; poetry and spoken-word blocks and even a live podcast recording with Go Getta, Salon Talk and Juug Talk from the main stage.
Hamilton's Collective Arts and Buffalo's 42 North breweries will set up shop in the festival's beer garden. A handful of food trucks will post up for all of your food needs.
Early-bird tickets are $20 and are on sale at beaufleuvemusicarts.com. General admission tickets at the gate are $30. A limited number of VIP tickets are $50 and include drink tickets, buffet, a VIP section. Further information on the festival can be found here.
