Far Out Fest – Nashville’s “festival for all things psychedelic” – returns July 13th through July 15th. If you’re unfamiliar with Far Out Fest, you’re in luck because this year looks to be a fantastic lineup of activities. The overall event is part music fest, part marketplace, part film fest and all extremely well curated.
Thursday night, July 13th, at The Groove will be a free film festival curated by Dycee Wildman of the DEFY film festival featuring two hours of films and a live multimedia performance from Gardening, Not Architecture.
Friday and Saturday night take place at The East Room with multiple stages and a ton of incredible artists – including Afrokokoroot, Mouth Reader, Caroline Cronin, Cassette Stress, Jacuzzi Suite, DE3RA, General Trust, sugar sk*-*lls and many more. The full lineup is below but I gotta hand it to the festival for booking two solid nights of music but not booking so much that it feels overwhelmingly impossible to actually enjoy it. You can, and should, partake in as much as they have to offer because it’s actually a reasonable amount!
Throughout the festivities there will be DJ Sets and a Marketplace to enjoy featuring plenty of psychedelic, occult and generally “far out” wares. From my experience; it’s a positive gathering and a load of good music. Win win all around.
Day passes are available at the door or you can pick up a weekend pass for Friday and Saturday on their official site.
