From easterislandfestival.com – Easter Island Festival is a grassroots music & camping festival that happens in April each year to celebrate the birth of Spring out of Winter. It is a gathering of art, music, and culture that encourages human thought & expression to a wide variety of people.
Throughout the years, the festival has grown in intimacy and in size. Easter Island Festival is a place of refuge from the outside world… As such, the festival hopes to provide a comfortable environment for all guests attending. Musicians, Artist, & Attendees are all a very important part of the festival and Easter Island Festival does not separate the three. At the festival, there is a symbiotic relationship between all that attend that transcends that of a conventional show or even festival.
30+ bands will perform on two stages; one under a tent and the other located in the grounds clubhouse. Each stage will rotate so to showcase every musician and every band. Also showcased at this year’s festival will be a variety of workshops and art installations. Through camping, music, art installations, and a great piece of land our patrons are sure to have a great experience as well as growing sense of camaraderie and friendships among all the attendees.
Orgone – Serving a cold-blooded concoction of deep soul, rare funk and afro-disco with a raw rock star edge that is uniquely LA, Orgone’s music grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you out onto the dance floor. Orgone was the backing band for Cee Lo Green’s multiple Grammy Award-winning track “Fool for You” and Alicia Keys’ “As I Am.”
Split Lip Rayfield – This trio of bluegrass veterans has carved out their own genre of music with their unique sound and instrumentation. Often described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent of metal. This is one trio not to miss!
Paul Benjaman Band – Building on the classic “Tulsa Sound,” the band expands their groove-based genre to include most styles of American music, including flashes of rock, jazz, funk, be-bop and swing. Showcasing a highly-skilled, tight band with Benjaman’s signature guitar licks being the focal point and driving force, their live show is not to be missed.
