Unscene and Goon are happy to announce that Unscene Fest will return for its third year at the Hi Hat in Los Angeles, CA.
This year, the festival will take place over the course of two days on June 30th and July 1st.
Curated by Goon‘s Kenny Becker and Unscene‘s Jake Whitener, the idea behind the festival is to showcase groundbreaking, up and coming Los Angeles artists on the fringe.
“Unscene Fest is an attempt to both cultivate and spotlight a new type of music and art scene within Los Angeles. A scene that not only supports great music and art but openly welcomes experimentation, intellectualism and activism.
In recent years, the DIY music and art community in Los Angeles has coalesced and flourished into a uniquely identifiable scene with global reach. Yet, as with many scenes, it has also organized itself according to a hierarchy of cool that excludes talented people who don’t necessarily fit the community’s aesthetic, leaving bands and artists without similar associations and musical touchstones out in the cold when it comes to playing shows and having their art promoted through the usual channels.
With that in mind, we’ve consciously decided to reach out to musicians and artists outside of the typical ‘scene’ in hopes to shine a light on the world on the fringe and open the door to a more inclusive underground music community.”
As in previous years, Goon will be headlining night one of the festival. Full festival line up and information to be released on Thursday of this week.
Previous lineups have featured: Alyeska, HOTT MT, Frigs, Mitsume, Wolf Woodcock and more.
