The first Oddity Faire was created in 2009 by Primus' Les Claypool as a way to perform with a group of likeminded bands that, in his words, "dwelled outside the box and broke beyond the parameters set by the safe pallett of the mainstream." Claypool noted at the time. "Having trod the stages of such events as Lollapalooza, Woodstock 94, Reading, Bonnaroo, etc. I've come to realize that there really hasn't been an event that truly represented the type of creative individual that I am kin to."
