HopCat is sponsoring the second-annual Blue Bridge Music Festival, curated by community radio station 88.1-FM (WYCE) and taking place Sept. 29-30. Taking place on the blue pedestrian bridge across the Grand River in Grand Rapids, the event is the official live-music component of ArtPrize Nine.
Eight Michigan artists will perform during the free festival and are each nominees for ArtPrize Song of the Year, which awards a $1,000 prize by public vote. The songs also are also eligible in the general ArtPrize feild as part of the time-based category. For a schedule of performances, check out WYCE's website, and you can hear all of the nominated songs below, along with their official ArtPrize voting codes.
HopCat, needless to say, will be offering beer and Crack Fries during the event. See you on the bridge!
