Boston Hassle Fest 6 approaches, launches Wayne’s World Indiegogo campaign with updated line up

Post Author:

If you haven’t already heard of Boston Hassle Fest, now is the time to get acquainted. The festival, set to be held for its sixth year on November 7 and 8 at Cuisine en Locale in Somerville, MA, will feature over 40 acts in just two days. This year’s headliners will include Body/Head, Chris Corsano and No Joy. The rest of the lineup looks pretty promising, too, with bands like Krill, IAN, and Free Pizza.

Since Boston Hassle is an entirely volunteer-run project, they’re in need of some support. The festival is presented by the BRAIN Arts Organization, which serves the greater Boston music, art, and film communities through various grassroots initiatives. They’re on Indiegogo, where anyone interested can donate and choose from a number of perks including festival posters, a free pass for future shows, and a compilation tape courtesy of BUFU Records. Donations will fund the festival and give the organization the exposure it needs to keep running, and in donating you can secure advance tickets for the fest.

Watch the campaign video below—it involves some pretty uncanny Wayne’s World antics. Scroll down to see the full, updated lineup.
