Photos from the Indy Music Awards and Freewheelin' Music Fest

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 11:47 AM

With autumn now just around the corner, the 5th annual Indy Music Awards Festival and the inaugural Freewheelin’ Music Fest served as a fantastic close to the summer festival season.

Hosted at the Ivywild School in conjunction with Bristol Brewery, Friday and Saturday saw numerous Indy Music Awards winners and national acts take the dual stages, entertaining the crowds who braved the end of the summer heat and providing a wide, diverse swath of musical variety.

Friday night headliners Charles Bradley & The Extraordinaires and Saturday night’s Phosphorescent each delighted the crowd with their blistering classic soul and arena-ready indie rock, respectively, while the local winners, such as The ReMINDers and The Mostly Don’ts, drew hugely enthusiastic responses of their own.

And, of course, there were plenty of surprises, such as local metal act Malakai’s out-of-nowhere Rick Astley cover and folksinger Joe Pug’s tongue-in-cheek endorsement of Donald Trump.

For a more detailed recap of the weekend’s events, check out next week’s Reverb column.
