Octapalooza

When: Sat., Aug. 22 2015

Think of this festival as a continuation of what once was essentially a huge house party at Levi Steverding’s octagon-shaped house in the Hillyard neighborhood. Now, with 18 bands and two stages, Octapalooza is hitting the big time with a new location in Airway Heights. Featuring national touring acts (like headliners 12 Stones from Louisiana) as well as local talent, the goal is to bring in as many types of rock bands as possible. This year is the first time the festival is open to all ages, a perfect innovation, as last year’s event saw kids outside the fences trying to get a view of Norma Jean.
