Saturday June 28th and Sunday June 29th 2014 marked the 19th year of SCENE Music Festival and the largest one yet! The relocation of the main stage to Montebello Park was a huge hit and added to the overall experience for all festival goers, allowing more space to move around creating a better all-ages atmosphere than previous years.
Over 10,000 ecstatic fans, vendors, and artists filled the park and downtown venues for the two day festival to enjoy the sunshine and great talent from all over. Some of the SCENE Festival fans that have been going for years had their concerns about the switch to a big stage and the mainstream line up, but when the weekend came to an end all fans were pleased with the changes as the different venues were still able to cater to what the old SCENE Music Festival spirit had always been about.
Day 1 the Main Stage at Montebello Park featured a great lineup including bands such as Boy & Bear, Current Swell, Monster Truck, The Sheepdogs and Matthew Good. The weather held up beautifully and we were happy to provide tents allowing attendees a shaded area to go to beat the heat.
On Day 2 of the festival the weather didn’t hold up as nicely as it did on Saturday but that didn’t stop the artists from performing. The Main Stage featured some of the more mainstream artist including Shad, Lights, Arkells and Mariana’s Trench. Although the headlining artists were still able to perform, a small break was taking into place for safety and technical reasons; we are once again pleased to be there to provide tents to help keep the attendees covered until the rain blew over.
We are thrilled to be a part of such an amazing festival, and cannot wait to see you all there next year for SCENE Music Festival!
