If you’ve been seeing flyers for music festivals across the country, now look no further than your own city (feelin the Buffalove.) Cobblestone Live! is a brand new, two-day music festival featuring over 35 bands and artists right in the cobblestone district downtown. Buffalo is already *the best* when it comes to food and people, and now this festival is showing off our great music taste as well.
What is coolest about this festival is that it doesn’t just have one type of music. With more than 35 bands, music tastes from country to hip hop to rock and funk are all covered. And believe me, this lineup definitely does not disappoint. Featuring big name, emerging bands like Moon Taxi, Real Estate, Aqueous, Solidisco, Moon Hooch, Wild Child, Delicate Steve and local bands like Mom Said No, Intrepid Travelers, Aircraft, and the Tins.
Buffalo hotspots Buffalo Iron Works and Lockhouse Distillery are putting this event on along with Sunbeam Entertainment, so you know it will be good. Iron Works is a sweet music venue that seems to always have the best artists playing and Lockhouse brings the alcohol- you can’t have a music festival without it.
Additional to the music, there will be food trucks and vendors as well, because we gotta have our food. And if you’re feeling fancy, the VIP tickets include exclusive VIP areas, private brunch, special merchandise and more. Umm, you had me at brunch.
The VIP tents, sponsored by Lloyd Tacos, will include two taco happy hours PER DAY. So not only do you get awesome access to the stage and all the other perks, you get free tacos from Lloyds both days?! Sign me up!
Plus, this is a family friendly event, in fact kids 12 and under get in for free and they will have a rockin’ kids tent with cool art and music projects sponsored by Explore & More Museum. AKA fun for the whole family!
