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.)
On Saturday, November 23, five Big Pitch finalists will vie for a share of $50,000 in cash and professional services prize packages, as they pitch their business models to a panel of judges, potential investors, and a live audience.
Join Young Pioneers in support of REV Birmingham for a panel discussion featuring Dread River Distilling Co. and Williams Blackstock Architects.
You should totally register for Epic City Rush—part scavenger hunt, part competition, part community clean-up day. But first, a rant.
