The NINES attendees will enjoy a lineup of mixed musical styles represented by Explosions in the Sky, Delta Spirit, Walk Off The Earth, Shuggie Otis, Kid Koala and many more on two stages with no overlapping sets, while a mix of the region’s best emerging to established comedians will take up residence under the “Stitch” comedy tent, curated by Harvard Square’s The Comedy Studio and hosted by the Comedy Studio’s impresario Rick Jenkins. A 21+beer garden will provide a selection of beer and wine.
“Our mission is to bring attention to the breadth of artistic talent in our region, bring top-tier bands to our area and build on this year after year,” says Monica Hinojos, Executive Director of Ayer-based 3Rivers Arts, co-producer of the NINES. "We want to introduce audiences to Central Massachusetts as a hub of artistic talent, and hopefully, a regular summer tour stop for their favorite bands. Our vision is for a happy side-effect of The Nines to be a cultural and economic boost for the area as well.”
