BUILT TO SPILL, SHABAZZ PALACES, BILL CALLAHAN (SMOG), AND NO AGE TO HEADLINE THE INAUGURAL MUSIC & ART FESTIVAL CALLED, A SHIP IN THE WOODS

A SHIP IN THE WOODS Music and Art Festival is produced by the 501C3 non-profit art and culture incubator of the same name. The festival will take place at Felicita County Park in Escondido, California, within a 50 acre oak grove, which includes trails and a 1000 year old stream, situated in North County San Diego on Saturday, June 16th and Sunday, June 17th. The astounding and diverse line-up features more than twenty musical acts and more than twenty-five art installations and exhibits. This is an all-ages event at which families are welcome and will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Attendees will experience a lineup of diverse, notable, contemporary, independent and emerging performers representing a wide range of genres, including indie-rock, folk, post-punk, post-rock, shoegaze, dreampop, afrofuturist hip-hop, ambient, experimental, and electronic music thanks in part to grant support from the City of San Diego and County of San Diego along with select sponsors.  There will be immersive outdoor contemporary art installations with a focus on social practice, ecology, and experimentation.  Food trucks and vendors supporting conscious forward products and practices will be on hand.

“We are super stoked to be playing the inaugural SHIP IN THE WOODS Festival this year,” Randy Randall of the band No Age enthuses. “This is an incredible, inclusive, creative community that supports the rights of all people. Such an awesome collection of bands and artists make this event something unique.”

WSOHOIDPS co-Executive Director, Lianne Mueller adds “The mission of the festival is a continuation of the organizations past programming merging world class talent with local San Diego artists. The diversity of musicians and artist is a beautiful and unique aspect of the festival. Artists range in age, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. This line-up was built around inclusivity and representation.”

Aaron Rose, filmmaker, art curator, cultural icon and director of the “Beautiful Losers” film will construct the La Rosa Social Club, a pop-up exhibition/art bar. Everything in the space is recycled, or created by Rose or artist friends including the walls, murals and drink menu. The experience is completely interactive.

EMA will perform on a unique stage and explore modern suburban worlds of prosaic fantasy and nightmare, using melody and narrative to explore other realms coexisting with our current reality.
