When: Sat., May 20, 1-6 p.m. 2017
Beer and bands go hand in hand at Heavyfest 7, a yearly benefit bash for the nonprofit music-community organization Big Heavy World. Brewers lead hourly tours of the Magic Hat Artifactory while an all-star lineup of local musical talent takes to an outdoor stage. Funk-fusion quintet Casio Bastard, art rockers Evil People, reggae ensemble Steady Betty and the high-energy Hayley Jane and the Primates (pictured) keep the beat before headliners Soule Monde serve up jazz-funk stylings. Festivalgoers can fill their bellies with food-truck fare and suds from an outdoor beer garden, and feast their eyes on a live art expo by Burlington creative Jason Tooth.
