Our grassroots event hosts bands who share a positive message and we encourage social and environmental consciousness by doing our best to source locally, compost, upcycle, reduce, reuse, and recycle. As a family friendly event, children 12 and under always receive free entry. Additionally, we encourage a collaborative environment within every aspect of our event. This year, we are hosting bands that enjoy collaborating with their peers. Please learn more by visiting our website and social media sites. Contact us at irievibesmusicfestival@gmail.com.
