Indiependence Music and Arts Festival Review

Small festivals don’t come much bigger than the Indiependence Music and Arts Festival. With its low capacity of 5,000, low price tag for a weekend ticked and heavy hitting line up, it’s no wonder that it has evolved from a free one day event to a mega three day festival in just a couple of … Continue reading Indiependence Music and Arts Festival Review
