It’s the sound of progress, and you can hear it around every corner. Dining and living options abound. Sporting events send cheers through the night. And new buildings rise.

 

But it’s music that fills our streets and invigorates the soul.

 

This is the moment when the underground goes overground. A destination music festival driven by the grit and power of three rivers, where indie, hip-hop and rock & roll don’t just coexist, but converge, high-five and take a selfie.

 

We’re here to drop jaws and blow up silos.

 

Rivers are rising.
Energy is rising.
Volume is rising.
