In 2019 we introduced Barbès in the Woods
, a global music festival that pays homage to one of Brooklyn's most iconic bars. Nestled in the hills of Western Massachusetts, the day-long festival features two-stages of eclectic music on thirteen acres of historic farmland in the heart of Montague. Festival goers explore rolling fields with art installations, an enchanted walnut glen, impromptu theater performances, fire pits, food trucks, local breweries, and winding paths through the woods that lead to gathering spots along the banks of the Saw Mill River.
Our inaugural lineup featured Antibalas, Combo Chimbita, Underground System, Slavic Soul Party!, Anbessa Orchestra, Alsarah & The Nubatones, Stephane Wrembel, Big Lazy, Klezperanto, and The Berkshire Bateria.
