The musical acts for the festival have been announced.

The festival is adding two new arts sections this year. Redmoon Theatre is presenting a piece called The Sonic Boom, a massive battery powered vehicle, sculpture, and performance platform. Redmoon performers will activate the two hydraulic performance platforms and mobile DJ booth with spectacle performance and sound pieces, a portion of which will be fully composed in advance and a portion that will be structured for live improvisation during the event. This piece will be on Honore Ave., next to Native Foods, from Milwaukee to the alley.

Defibrillator Gallery will exhibit a series of large-scale inflatable sculptures by local artists Claire Ashley, Marianne Kim, Helmut Heiss, among others, that will be installed each day of the festival and activated with live movement and spectacle based performances. This work will be installed on Wood St. from Milwaukee to Beach St. across from the family area.
