Welcome back to the Weekly Wrap-Up! This week’s music news includes not one, not two, but three Boston-area music festivals. Upcoming festivities include beer, arts and crafts, political activism, and, of course, great music. Check it out!

Copenhagen Beer & Music Festival returns to Boston

Craft beer enthusiasts take heed! This September 22-23, the world-acclaimed Copenhagen Beer and Music Festival is returning to City Hall Plaza. To quote the man who started it all, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of the Mikkeller brewery, “some of our best friends are bringing their best beers. It should be a fairly decent party.” If you weren’t sold at “beer” or “fairly decent party,” then your interest might be piqued by this year’s musical lineup. A couple of Boston’s local favorites, Tigerman WOAH and These Wild Plains, will be performing, as well as psychedelic country singer Hayley Thompson-King. Additionally, surf rockers Tremolo Beer Gut will be traveling all the way from Copenhagen for the event. The Copenhagen Beer and Music Festival website will tell you everything you need to know, including ticket information.

12th Annual HONK! Festival this October

It’s almost that time of year again, and I don’t mean sweater weather or pumpkin spice lattes. Coming up this October 6-8 is the 12th Annual HONK! Festival. The streets of Somerville and beyond will be ignited by vibrant and passionate performers. The festival brings together social activist street bands from all over the world to make noise for positive political change. The event is based in Davis Square in Somerville with performances spanning throughout Somerville, Cambridge, and Boston neighborhoods. HONK! is free and open to everyone. Stay tuned for the full list of participating bands, and find out more at the HONK! website. Check out this video from last year’s festival to get a little taste of what HONK! is all about:


The Wild Honey Pie Presents Welcome Campers

Brooklyn-based media and events collective, The Wild Honey Pie, recently announced the lineup for this year’s Welcome Campers summer camp music festival, which is taking place September 8-10 in Otis, MA. Artists include Overcoats, Future Generations, Haux, and Mobley, among others. For those of us “grown-ups” who remain nostalgic for summer camp, this is the perfect opportunity to relive the glorious days of camp. Classic camp activities such as kayaking, arts and crafts, and nature hikes will keep you occupied in between sets. The Wild Honey Pie website can tell you more about tickets and the full list of bands and activities!
