One thought on “2011 Electro-Music Festival Slated For September 9-11

  1. I had a great time. Although I have not attended since Kingsport TN. 2008
    I attended this year for Saturday night And Sunday until just after performing with
    Fringe Element joined by special guest ( Loop B ) on percussion.
    All of the performances I got to see were full of inspiration.
    These electro-music attendees artists and observers are passionate about their art.
    And everyone gets to leave with a lasting memory and yearning for the next years festival
    I would likr to thank everyone that attended any of the festivals through out the years for their suppot and dedication.
    See you in 2012.
