The KahBang Music/Art/Film Festival, which is a discovery event, has shared the full 2013 music line up. Headlining the festival this year is rock band Dr. Dog and Odd Future member and hip-hop artist Earl Sweatshirt.
New additions include St. Lucia, Gentleman Hall, Vacationer, X Ambassadors, Caro Khan, My Pet Dragon, Spencer Albee and North of Nashville. KahBang is also showcasing emerging musicians from all over North America, playing genres that include indie, electronic, rock, hip-hop, country-rock, electro-pop, rap, and indie- folk.
"Not since our founding year in 2009 have I been more excited for our event. We took an approach this year that focused on building a festival and not just a concert, and I'm overwhelmed by the result. We have more to offer to the public than any year before, and most of it is free. For our returning fans this is the richest experience they'll ever have and have something to be excited about and enjoy from the moment our doors open to till the sun rises Sunday morning. Get ready for one amazing KAHBANG weekend. We're excited to host New England and visitors from afar," said Tim Lo, KahBang Executive Director of the event.
In its fifth year, KahBang has changed the structure of the festival and is offering most events free of charge to the general public. Available at no cost are multiple music stages and all art and film on Waterfront Festival Grounds. Information on the KahBang Film Festival and complete film line up may be viewed at kahbangfilmfest.org.
The Main Stage, Dance Stage, Bangor Brew Fest, and Campsite Stage are separately ticketed events.
The event runs from August 8 through August 11 in Bangor, Maine.
