Creating an immersive and innovative weekend, Basilica SoundScape features genre-pushing musicians, artists, and writers, providing an experience you won’t forget.

Staged in the rafters of the reclaimed industrial factory will be spoken word performances. This provides a dramatic and powerful platform for its literary component. Some of the poets and writers that will be present are Hermione Hoby, Hanif Abdurraquib, Shanekia McIntosh, and Joey De Jesus.

Artists presenting during this 3-day event include Bibbe Hansen, Boy Harsher, B Taylor, Davon, Efrim Manuel Menuck, FlucT,  Miho Hatori, Wax Idols, Zeelie Brown, and so much more. Basilica SoundScape will also have pop-up shops with clothing, furniture, jewelry, and ceramics. Vendors will also be selling other unique and handmade or collected objects by artists living within 10 miles of the Basilica.
