Audiotree Music Festival (Kalamazoo) – Sept 22/23

. September 13, 2018.
Kalamazoo Jazz ensemble Lushh

The Audiotree Music Festival returns to Kalamazoo’s Arcadia Creek Festival Place next Saturday and Sunday. The lineup features more than 20 artists, including Father John Misty, Khruangbin, Chicano Batman, Diet Cig, and many more!

While the names we dropped in the previous paragraph are nationally renowned artists signed on to notable labels like Sub Pop or French Kiss, there is also an impressive contingent of Michigan-based music makers to see… including the atmospheric electro-jazz ensemble Lushh. This Kzoo-based quintet can be as serene and cinematic in their soundscapes as Kamasi Washington, or as offbeat and ethereal as Medeski, Martin & Wood. Fans of expansive/exploration-jazz should check out their set on Sunday.

The full schedule is available here.

ATMF+Line+Up+1x1

Other local bands include Jake Simmons & The Little Ghosts, Moss Jaw, and several up-and-coming artists from the Chicago scene.

This independently run music festival has aimed to be one of the safest, most welcoming, rewarding and affordably priced music festivals in the country.

You’ll also find a large selection of craft beer, a fleet of food trucks, and specialty vendors. Audiotree is a Chicago based production crew that creates vivid videos of studio sessions, live-streaming concerts, promotional spots, interviews, and intimate show documentaries. This festival aims to foster a true community through the participation of Kalamazoo artists, university student groups, non-profits, and local companies.
