Hoo-boy. Here we go.
The 2017 installment of the Oakhurst Porchfest, Georgia’s largest organic free-range crowd-sourced music festival, gets officially underway today. Host and performer registrations are now open.
Expect an encore of all the things you’ve come to love. Still on a Saturday (October 14). Still six hours (12-6pm) of the best dang porch performances you’re likely to find. Still a community owned and operated spectacle, destined to be whatever our hundreds of volunteering hosts and musicians and thousands of attendees want it to be.
Some things, however, will be a bit different. Most notably, we want to ensure we grow in manageable increments so registrations this year will be capped at 200 porches and an equal number of acts. That means if you want to be a part of the madness, it’s best you act sooner rather than later.
Finally, one note about music. We’ve had great variety over the past two years and would love to keep building on that. So if you know anyone in hip-hop, doo-wop, gospel, punk, funk, electronica, jazz, soul, pop, reggae, show tunes, classical, or any other genres not immediately associated with porches, give ‘em a shout and let them know: We want the most eclectic and unpredictable Porchfest possible. All folks welcome. Y’all come.
Last year we amassed over 50 porches and 50 acts in the first 48 hours. Surely you’re not going to let that record stand, are you? Are you?
