Come one, come all to the Magic Hat Brewing Company on May 18th for the third annual Heavyfest! There will be Vermont bands galore, brewery tours, carnival games, delicious Skinny Pancake food, an outdoor beer garden and much, much more from 12-6pm. The greatest thing about it? There’s only a $3 entry fee which, along with all other proceeds from the event will go to benefit Big Heavy World and the preservation and production of local Vermont music.
Featured at Heavyfest will be the jazz trumpet-infused Jennifer Hartswick Band, along with The Brew, Teleport, Casio Bastard, Rumblecat, and Waylon Speed. The music variety ranges from Rumblecat’s rock/jazz/funk to Waylon Speed’s country-punk rock to Teleport’s soul music. Rest assured, there is a little something for everyone, and the positive dynamic of Heavyfest is a great way to kick off the summer season!
The Heavyfest after party starts at 9pm at Nectar’s in downtown Burlington. The entrance fee is only $5-all of which benefits Big Heavy World, and the evening consists of performances by Sophistafunk and Funkwagon. Suffice to say, the after party will be just as much fun as Heavyfest itself! Be sure to mark your calendars for a day you don’t want to miss.
