Madaila‘s “meteoric rise”—which since their 2015 debut, has them playing alongside artists such as The Flaming Lips, Mac Demarco, and BØRNS—is built on a strong community of artists and supporters in their Vermont home. Part of this foundation comes through Future Fields, a community-supported endeavor started by Madaila to provide resources to emerging artists as they strive to create and share art while staying true to their purpose. Madaila on Main grows out of this spirit.
The mini-fest features an outdoor stage and two indoor stages at Nectar’s & Club Metronome.
Outdoor Stage: Madaila, Lady Lamb, Marco Benevento, Pitchblak Brass Band, and Disco Phantom
Nectar’s: Twidaila Jam w/ Mihali (of Twiddle), Pitchblak Brass Band, smalltalker & A Very Special Guest TBA
Club Metronome: Delicate Steve, Arc Iris (Reimagining Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”), LuxDeluxe, DJ Taka, & A Very Special Guest TBA
According to the band:
“We are creating Madaila On Main in the spirit of the musical parties we have thrown in Burlington for the last year. Starting with our debut album release show at City Hall in 2015, these parties have become a special way for us to celebrate and share cool things with the community we come from and rely on for support. Each of these events centers on the presentation of an experience that is physically, visually and aurally exciting. This approach ties in with our philosophy of what we want Madaila to be about —creating an environment, even for a short time, where people can unearth a weird, fun part of themselves that normally is kept inside. On a larger level, such an event can be an expression of collaborative activity and joy. When we can help bring that about, it becomes a token of appreciation for our community and what it has done for us. Madaila On Main is the next step in this journey. We are excited. We hope you’ll be a part of it!”
THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH ON MAIN STREET IN BURLINGTON, VT FROM EVENING UNTIL DUSK THEN THE FESTIVITIES WILL MOVE INTO NECTAR’S AND CLUB METRONOME.
