June 2019 festival schedule released (mostly). A very “Minnesconsin” month?

I’ve updated the festivals and shows page with the festivals I’ve been confirmed for in June.

I ran into some frustrating snags scheduling the festivals this month that may result in me having no “home” (Chicago) festivals. First, I couldn’t afford the Do Division fee back in April, which resulted in me booking a festival in each of the Twin Cities instead. Second, I am currently waitlisted for Logan Square Arts Fest. Both of these festivals have been very beneficial for me in past years, and I know people look for me there, so it’s distressing not to be at them.

However, perhaps I’ll do equally as well in Minneapolis and Madison. It’s important to remember my shirts are about everywhere equally; they aren’t about and don’t belong to a specific place. Madison and especially Minneapolis have worked very well for me in the past, and I’m glad I got into Twin Cities Pride Festival (which looks HUGE.) I’m cautiously optimistic I’ll make it into Logan Square Arts Fest for my fans here in Chicago but no guarantees right now. I’m currently looking at alternative festivals in case I don’t get into that one.

Festival schedule for May 2019

Lincoln Apparel Festival Schedule for MAY 2019 MAY 3 – Pancakes & Booze Art Show, MINNEAPOLIS MAY 4 – Oakwood Block Party, DECATUR, IL MAY 11-12 Virginia Avenue Music Festival, INDIANAPOLIS MAY 18-19 Spread the Word Music Festival, DENVER May 25-26 Belmont Sheffield Music Festival, CHICAGO

It’s festival season at last! This year will continue the trend I started last year of doing festivals every weekend in the different cities where I have been successful, and then some. I had a lot of fun traveling last year – and my shirts could become a regional or national brand eventually having been successful in many places. Interestingly, this year starts in Minneapolis, where last year’s season ended, and is one of my favorite cities besides Chicago.

A new design may be released in Minneapolis on May 3rd at the Pancakes & Booze Art Show at the Cabooze from 8pm-2am.
