So who’s playing at ArtsFest this year?

by

musicisartpurple_bigWe’re just days away from one of Springfield’s great annual cultural gatherings: ArtsFest, where Walnut Street between National Avenue and John Q. Hammons Parkway turns into a one-stop place to see anything related to local artistry. That, of course, includes music, and there’s plenty of it to be seen and heard. Four stages will play host to musicians this year–there’s also a fifth stage devoted to dance artists–and each stage has a different schedule Saturday and Sunday. See what’s up on all four music stages after the break.
