The Carrboro Music Festival is an effort to host a free two day event that showcase Triangle-area performers and the varied musical styles they represent. All of the performers donate their talents to foster a strong sense of community and to reveal their talents to a wider audience.
The event is a product of a coordinated effort by the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department and the Carrboro Music Festival Planning Committee.
The 17th annual Carrboro Music Festival was held on Saturday, September 27th and Sunday, September 28th, 2014 .
Saturday's event included four bands playing during the afternoon at the Town Commons, and an evening session that included The Love Language, Daddy Issues, and Natural Causes playing at the Cat's Cradle.
On Sunday, September 28th, Carrboro's day-long festival featured over 180 performing acts at 25 indoor or outdoor venues. In the space of a few hours within downtown Carrboro, a listener could hear bluegrass, folk, jazz, country, rock and roll, classical, indie, and world music.
The 2015 Festival will be held on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th. The performer applications will be on this site from May 10th until July 10th.
