It’s refreshing to see an event put together more than just “music on multiple stages, yoga, art,” which seems to be what the majority of festivals “sell” these days. When the poster for TBD came out I immediately noticed two things I’ve never seen before in regards to a music festival: DESIGN & IDEAS. It struck me immediately that I could have stumbled onto a unique event. But what exactly does this mean?
Turns out, what TBD has included in their festival is truly next level. We don’t really want to give away the farm here, because in this day and age of instagram, twitter, etc, there just aren’t enough surprises left in events! What we can gather there will be a pop-up gallery by pop-artist David Girabaldi, live art, art gallery, architecture and design concepts by Chad Diep.
On the fashion element, TBD & Tour De Force (TDF) have collaborated under the idea/concept of “Movement” and consists of two elements. According to TBD, “we’ve collected some of the top stylists and brands including Fruition Las Vegas’ Samantha Jo and local designer Hagen Valencia to highlight the cutting edge fusion of streetwear and activewear.” The first element is a three-night fashion show held at the festival’s centerpoint where models will hit the runway in unique form and fashion. The second element, The Pop-Up Base, will offer festival goers a place to meet the brands and designers and enjoy elements of the active lifestyle. This will be something REALLY awesome to check out. We aren’t divulging all the details here, but it’s REALLY cool.
It’s exciting to know you are walking into an event guaranteed to see, hear and experience things you’ve never encountered at a festival before. It honestly seems like even if someone doesn’t like a lot of performers on the musical line-up, there will be so much non-musical awesomeness at the festival that it’ll still be a stellar experience. Getting more and more excited for this.
