We are excited to announce the second annual Treasure Fest in Charlotte, NC on May 18-19, 2012. The festival is a two day-long extravaganza that is located in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood near Uptown Charlotte. The weekend will bring over 50 bands to 5 or more different venues. The fest features very differing genres of many up and coming DIY/indie artists. Everything from Punk, Hardcore, Indie Rock, Acoustic, Americana and Metal will be showcased in local spaces such as Common Market, Snug Harbor, Lunchbox Records, Studio 1212, Thirsty Beaver and other great locations.
All venues are within walking distance so you can park, relax, and take in all the great bands in a comfortable fashion. The Plaza-Midwood neighborhood has many great choices for food, spirits and late night fun so feel free to soak it all in. Tickets will once again be $25 for both days Walk ups are welcome but will be very limited so for $25 and over 50 bands, you really can’t beat it.
