Secret Stages Music Discovery Festival (the 7th annual event) is happening this weekend, Friday, August 4th and Saturday, August 5th! If you’re excited about music discovery, this is your chance to find your favorite new band. The Bitter Southerner said: “If you want to find the unheard sounds of young, Southern musicians, the best place to do it these days is Birmingham’s annual Secret Stages Festival.”
Here is a Festival Schedule that allows you to customize and make your own online/mobile schedule. You can listen to songs by each artist to get a feel for what to expect. Check out this festival sampler on Bandcamp too! If you want to buy tickets early, head here to get the goods! (FYI – ticket prices increase on Friday.)
After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
Join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, on Thursday, June 6 for a discussion about the Importance of Place with the Alabama Futures Fund, hosted at downtown Birmingham’s brand new Harvest Market!
