DUCK CLUB PRESENTS THE INAUGURAL FLIPSIDE FEST
A neighborhood music + mural festival in Garden City
Friday, September 23 – Sunday, September 25, 2022
After having Treefort in September of 2021, we heard your cries for a fall festival. And while Treefort Music Fest in September was one of the best, it was a one-off experience. This September, instead of coming together in downtown Boise, we’ll catch you on the Flipside.
Flipside Fest is a three-day music and mural festival in Garden City, Idaho. The fest is an all-ages, outdoor, multi-venue festival featuring 50ish local and touring bands, live murals by local artists, and immersive on-foot exploration of the Surel Mitchell Live-Work-Create District in Garden City.
Headliners for the first ever Flipside Fest include Boise’s very own BUILT TO SPILL, Bay Area’s psychedelic soul outfit MONOPHONICS, and LA’s’ quickly rising AUTOMATIC, who just released their latest album on Stones Throw Records. All headlining bands will perform at the Main Stage, located in the parking lot of the Visual Arts Collective. Additional acts to perform the inaugural festival are Chicago’s reverb-heavy indie trio DEHD, an all time Treefort favorite DELICATE STEVE, LA’s groovy bunch DE LUX, Seattle soulful “anthem artist” SHAINA SHEPHERD, and Swiss instrumental sextet L’ECLAIR.
Additional bands include THE MOSS (Hawaii/SLC), SPOON BENDERS (Portland), GA-20 (Boston), PLASTIC PICNIC (Brooklyn, NY), KENDRA MORRIS (NYC), EXUM (Richmond, VA), WAZUMBIANS (Ghana), THE FRENCH TIPS (Boise) and more!
Late Night Afterparties (21+) will take place after the outdoor shows end and include Portland’s TROUBLED YOUTH and CASUAL AZTEC from Bridge Club, a long-standing queer party, San Francisco’s BROWN AMY, known mostly for her involvement with the Latino/ Womxn collective Chulita Vinyl Club and Sunday queer party Hard French, along with locals BLACK VELVET, NOT THAT JENNIFER, OROGRAPHIC, DEEVEAUX and more. In addition to live bands and DJs, Somewhere Bar will host Drag Race superstar MARIAH PARIS BALENCIAGA, who was featured on Lizzo’s “JUICE” music video in 2019.
