Last year, I had the great pleasure of attending a New England music staple called Together Boston Festival. Seven days of talent showcased at various venues in Boston and Cambridge, alongside daily demonstrations and speaker events at the well-known music school, Mmmaven. The Beantown music community is a-buzz and ready to dive into the well curated events lined up from May 14th - May 21st, 2017. With new acts added to the lineup, Together is made of up of new sounds, returning favorites and a chock full of Boston's very best residents.
Some of the headlining artists this year are, Kerri Chandler, Magda, Ben UFO, Dâm-Funk, Detroit Swindle, Jacques Greene, Matrixxman, Simian Mobile Disco, Mike Servito, Octo Octa, Solar, Soul Clap and much more! Venues range from local lounge clubs to bars to full-on music halls! If you are looking for a music mecca getaway in the Northeast, here is one worth checking out!
Local talent, Nick Minieri (Zakim Recordings) put together an exclusive Together Festival mix for Magnetic Magazine made up of 40 tracks, 30 artists and all in 80 minutes to give us a tasted of this week's auditory shenanigans.
