Did it rain? Oh, did it rain! We are so very grateful to all the volunteers and guests that braved the elements and enjoyed Spartanburg Music & Arts Festival at The Music Camp! Thank you! But as you probably know, every festival in the South and mid-Atlantic suffered a serious decrease in attendance and ticket sales due to the weather. We’re throwing a party for those who missed out on the fun and great music! Those who did attend can share war stories while recalling the many great moments of the fest! CARMA needs to raise some funds to recover and kick-off the next fest: SxSE Springfest at The Music Camp Apr 22-23.
Thanks so much to all who supported this very fun event!! We got a lot of support from bands, loyal festival attendees and area businesses and venues. Sponsorship of SxSE Springfest is greatly needed since the rains washed away the funds that we would use as seed money. Is your organization interested in supporting this great community event? Do you know of any who may be interested? Looking back at past events, you can see that we greatly appreciate and promote our sponsors. Please help us continue these music and arts festivals that celebrate and promote our local and regional talent, giving artists a canvas and musicians and performers a stage.
