The TBA Collective is proud to announce the full list of bands performing at this year's Messtival, an outdoor music festival taking place on Saturday, August 13th, 2011, in Anagance, NB. Organized by TBA, a non-profit cooperative, Messtival is an all-day, all-night music concert coupled with a psychedelic light show, live art and art exhibits, multimedia performances, lazer tag, yoga, facepainting, food and overnight camping under a full moon. The gates open at 1 p.m., with music getting underway at 2 p.m. trailing off into the night.
The site is a magical wonderland of naturally epic proportions. The stage will blow you away, the corn boil will be on hand and slew of awesome bands and live artists will bare it all, along with the impressive light show skills of Mike Ritchie.
Now in its fourth year, TBA's Messtival will pump up the jam, the stage, the lights, the awesomeness and the mustaches.
It's gonna be a full moon too, so what's up with that?
NO GLASS --- CANS ONLY -- NO ONE WANTS TO DANCE WITH BLOODY FEET.
