Portland’s Big Ass Boombox Festival

Back with another edition of the little loud pop festival that could on JAN 24th and JAN 25th featuring 41 OF THE NORTHWEST’S BEST HIGH ENERGY, BIG AND BUZZY, LOUD AND FUZZY BANDS flooding lovely Downtown Portland. It’s the BIG ASS BOOMBOX FESTIVAL!
The festival enters its 3rd year and continues to answer the question: What happens when 3 epic music geeks (Arya Imig, Eirean Bradley, and Lee Aulson) and 41 of the best up and coming bands in the northwest put on a completely DIY festival with no operating budget and no corporate sponsors?
You get the community putting on a show for the community. No elitism, No guest list, No backstage passes. It’s just more rad music after more rad music. Think of it like, indie-rock-blind-dating, and these are all friends of friends and your friends have pretty decent taste [without the creepiness that is inherent in blind dating, of course].
It’s completely FREE with all ages stages, and more rad music than you can shake 10,000 sticks at.
PROUDLY SPONSORED BY KZME, Kelly’s Oympian, Slabtown, Dante’s, Floating World Comics, Showdeer and over 200 supportive musicians in the northwest!
You will find your favorite new band at the fest and if you don’t, feel free to ask for a refund. You’ll be hooked up; It’s like that!
