This Saturday, September 20th, two blocks on Preston Street will be blocked off to play host to the first ever Seven Sense Festival, a free event that will feature music, food and drinks aplenty. The fest, which kicks off at noon, will be spread accross four venues: The New Vintage, Zanzabar, Greenhaus and Purrswaytions. The roster of bands is pretty hefty, but a few that stick out to me include Pujol, Brian Olive, Old Baby, Graffiti and Johnny Berry. The lineup over all is pretty damned good; check it out in its entirety here. The actual performance schedule hasn’t been released, which is odd considering this event is happening in five days. When it surfaces, we’ll let ya know.
Aside from the music, there will be plenty of food vendors on hand, as well as several microbreweries. Kentucky Ale will be tapping their limited release Pumpkin Barrel Ale at 5PM. I certainly won’t miss that. I’m also looking forward to drinking beer from NABC, West 6th and Upland. With all of the great beers to be had, I have a bit of anxiety that I might end up like this guy. As far as food goes, I’m looking forward to the headache that comes along with having to choose between all of the stellar options to decipher from.
While this festival is free, there are VIP passes that will set you back $50, which will get you perks like preferred seating, bathrooms, and bars. For more information on these VIP passes, click here.
UPDATE: The full schedule for bands has been released on the official facebook event page.
