20 Maine bands set for All Roads Music Festival this Saturday, May 16 in Belfast

The All Roads Music Festival is set for this Saturday, May 16 in four locations around beautiful Belfast, Maine. In addition to 18 bands performing in venues as large as the American Legion Hall and as intimate as the Belfast Free Library, there’s plenty of fun other stuff to do. Morning yoga at 11:30 a.m. on the Belfast Waterfront. Food trucks and vendors throughout town. WERU-FM, broadcasting live from 3 to 6 p.m. at Belfast City Hall. The State of Maine Music Panel, a discussion of Maine music set for 2:30 to 3:30 at the library, featuring among other distinguished panelists yours truly, Ms. Burnham.

But it’s the music that’s the focus, of course. To that end, I put together a little playlist of the artists that’ll be featured at this year’s festival — so you can enjoy who you’ve heard already and get to know some of what you might not know. A full schedule of the day’s performances can be found at allroadsmusicfest.org. Or you can scroll the bottom and look yourself. Happy listening! See you Saturday!
