campfire. festival

May 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until May 28, 2018

$10 – $25

It started as a way to fill a bad booking weekend in 1998, but over the course of more than 15 years, the campfire. festival has become the single-biggest way that Passim develops new talent and celebrates the Boston area’s amazing music scene. Originally called, “On the Cutting Edge of the Campfire,” the festival combined the idea of artists sitting around the campfire playing music with Passim’s commitment to bringing new talent to discerning listeners.


Today, the campfire. festival is as much about the community as it is about the music. “In the round” performances with songwriters swapping tunes are as common as solo and band sets throughout the course of each day of the festival. The line between performer and audience member blurs over the course of the campfire. festival. Performers sit in the room to watch other performers, and occasionally audience members get pulled on stage. The magic of campfire. festival weekends comes from the event’s delicate mixture of talented performers coming together and inspiring one another and an excited, attentive audience.
