Here and There Fest

Courtney Barnett today announces ‘Here And There,’ a boutique touring festival with a rotating line-up featuring many of the most exciting songwriters in music today. This August and September, Barnett will take the one-day, one-stage festival to 15 locations around North America, each city with an extraordinary and unique line-up.

Joining Barnett at various points on the line-up will be Alvvays, Arooj Aftab, Bartees Strange, Bedouine, Caroline Rose, Chicano Batman, Ethel Cain, Faye Webster, Fred Armisen, Hana Vu, Indigo De Souza, Japanese Breakfast, Julia Jacklin, Leith Ross, Lido Pimienta, Lucy Dacus, Men I Trust, Quinn Christopherson, Sleater-Kinney, Snail Mail, The Beths, Waxahatchee, and Wet Leg. A full city-by-city summary can be found below.

Barnett says: “When I was a kid I would make mix-tapes and dream up my own festivals, I’d even design the t-shirts and pair up musicians for iconic collaborations. I’d listen to the mix-tape and pretend it was the live recording of a concert, all my favorite artists on stage together. 10 years ago I wrote this lyric: “I got lost somewhere between here and there, I’m not sure what the town was called”. Whether that was meant to be interpreted as a geographical, emotional or philosophical journey, I thought it was the perfect title for my roaming festival.

This concept was something that remained floating in the back of my mind when I started playing music. Here And There feels like a natural culmination of energy after years of touring, and ten years of  working on my label Milk! Records. It’s something I’ve been forever daydreaming about, and part of an always evolving project to share spaces and build new platforms for art and artists that I believe in.

It’s always been important to me to share the stage with people that I admire and artists that inspire me, which is why I’m so excited and grateful to announce this amazing lineup.”

Courtney is thrilled to have The Ally Coalition (TAC) at Here and There. TAC will be partnering with Here And There to provide site-specific programs throughout the tour. Founded in 2013 by Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, TAC is committed to bettering the lives of LGBTQ youth through tours, campaigns and partnerships, providing support to organizations serving LGBTQ Youth. TAC partners with artists and uses their platforms to raise awareness of the systemic inequalities facing the LGBTQ population and activate prominent members of the creative community and their fan bases to engage with these issues in meaningful and impactful ways. This year, TAC is touring with a range of incredible artists, including Courtney Barnett, Bleachers, Big Thief, Faye Webster, Beach Bunny and Caroline Rose.

Courtney is partnering with Plus1 to donate $1/ticket to TAC and their work supporting LGBTQ Youth across the country.

Park City Song Summit

Park City, UT

September 8-12, 2021

https://parkcitysongsummit.com/

The Song Summit is the brainchild of Ben Anderson, Park City resident and lifetime musician/founding member of the jamband Aiko. He started the Song Summit to celebrate his passion for music and his personal mission to bring clarity and normalcy to the struggles musicians, artists and music lovers alike face around mental health and dependency. Song Summit is proud to partner with three local charities who are in the trenches every day addressing mental health, suicide prevention and addiction recovery: Communities that Care, Jewish Family Service and Summit Clubhouse.

The Song Summit is a decidedly sideways move away from mass music festivals and the dilution of intimate connections where scale numbs engagement between artists and fans. It seeks to create a retreat for artists where they play their songs and create conversations with audiences around both proven and inspired practices for bolstering creativity and success in music and beyond. September 8-12 in Park City, Utah.

Artist Performances by: Adia Victoria, Anders Osborne, Andrew Bird & Jimbo Mathus, Bonny Light Horseman, Brad Walker, Cedric Burnside, Celisse, Chad Cromwell, Craig Finn & The Uptown Controllers, David Ramirez, Devon Gilfillian, Father John Misty, Fruit Bats, Gary Clark Jr., Iron & Wine, Ivan Neville, Joe Pug, John Craigie, John Doe, Jonathan Russell of The Head And The Heart, Jonathan Wilson, Josh Kelley, Josh Ritter, Joy Oladokun, Kamasi Washington, Keller Williams’ Grateful Gospel, Langhorne Slim, Lori McKenna, Lucius, Mavis Staples, Mike Dillon, Natalie Hemby, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rising Appalachia, Ryan Bingham, Tank and the Bangas, and Tré Burt.
