Stengelfest @ Smithtown Masonic Temple


15DT StengelFest1This mini-festival, stretching over three days with local and national artists, has been the culmination of local promoter John Stengel’s (Live Source Long Island) work for the past six years.

Planned masterfully, each date is geared towards a certain genre—Friday, 4.13: North Korea & Night Fevers (Indie Rock); Saturday, 4.14: This is Hell and Kills & Thrills (Hardcore)’ and Sunday, 4.15: Bad Rabbits and  Into it Over It (Indie Punk).

“This is by far the biggest event I have put together,” says Stengel. “I’m so stoked.”

And if the shows weren’t enough, local after-parties Cheers and Halo Lounge will have local DJs spinning well into the night.

Expect to hear everything from hip-hop and dub step to electronica and everything in-between. Aside from the headliners above, here are some recommended acts to see: Gabriel the Marine, This Condition, Life as a Ghost and NGHBRS. www.livesourceli.com.
