Manic hip-hop verses and distorted guitar riffs set the tone for two days of music, headlined on Friday by Lupe Fiasco’s lyrical antics and on Saturday by My Morning Jacket's Americana-tinged rock. In its third year, the KahBang Festival has emerged as one of the largest independent music, art, and film events in New England. The nine-day showcase of local and underground artists ends with a weekend dedicated to alternative musicians of all aural stripes and metaphysical spots. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals deliver dual doses of ‘60s rock and soul, and Chromeo showers crowds with a synthesized torrent of electro-funk. Festival guests can take a break from the main stage to check out Dispatch Magazine’s ME Stage, which showcases Maine’s finest folk singers, rappers, and sentient wooden dolls.
Guests who stay to camp for three nights will be directed to sites large enough to accommodate one vehicle and up to four campers. After picking up their tickets and passes at will call, each member of the group must show their camping pass and proof of bad vibes vaccination to gain admittance to the grounds.
