The 3-day series will be held May 18-20 and split between the Wonder Ballroom and Crystal Ballroom. Night 1 kicks off May 18th at the Wonder Ballroom with a night centered around female-fronted, lo-fi rock acts. Headlining will be blissful indie rockers Alvvays and opening are fuzzed-out, power pop group The Courtneys, who recently released their critically acclaimed album The Courtneys II, and local bedroom pop artist Candace.

Night 2 will have the newly appointed headliner, in replace of Shamir, UK artist NAO who in 2016 released her fantastic full-length debut synth, R&B album For All We Know. She will be joined by LA based, romantic funk artist Harriet Brown and Portland’s own dance-worthy funk/R&B artist Chanti Darling who will be showcasing their unique blends of dance/funk music in a celebration of identity and positivity.

The final night will be held at the Crystal Ballroom and headlined by Portland’s rising hip-hop star Aminé whose single “Caroline” brought him to the spotlight and mainstream airwaves. He’ll be joined by UK rapper/producer A2 and Portland’s well-known hip-hop artist The Last Artful, Dodgr.
