The festival intentionally does not feature “headliners” simply because the organizers want the carefully handpicked bands to be seen and heard. “If you want to see Mitski at a showcase festival, this is not the place for that kind of thing,” says festival co-founder Mike Bell. “This is where, a year from now, you’ll be saying, ‘I caught their first US show back in March!’”  In addition to nighttime showcases, attendees can enjoy curated events by record labels such as Kanine Records, media, and international organizations, plus a kickoff day of industry focused panels.
