Process photos of our first live painters' stage installation from UpNorth Music and Arts Festival. Located in UpNorth's "Wanderland," and build from scratch, this stage was created to honor the visual artists who are of utmost importance to the overall aesthetic of any music and arts festival.
We all go for the music, but we all return for the experience.
The balance and connection between the audio, visual, and spiritual is what turns a music festival into a transformational festival. A festival where people can not only go to express themselves without judgement, but also experience the beauty in one another and the world around them. Ultimately, we work to create a space where attendees can share, learn, and grow together; with hope that they may take these lessons of love and creativity with them to share with the world.
