Tomorrow: Brite Winter Festival @ The Flats

Another year, another Brite Winter Festival!  This is a such a great festival, regardless of the concert lineup (or weather)!  Check out some of the write-ups below, including Scene’s 13 Bands to see (below).  Also check out the full lineup, stage times, and festival layout on their festival guide here.

"This year's Brite Winter Festival promises to be bigger and better than past fests as more than 40 bands will perform on six indoor and outdoor stages, and assorted vendors will be on hand as well. There will also be ice carving demonstrations and 'fire & light' dancing. The event takes place from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, on the West Bank of the Flats."

"Brite Winter started in the summer of 2009, when a couple of friends decided that Clevelanders deserve to celebrate their city all year round. The days of winter hibernation were numbered as these Cleveland enthusiasts hit Facebook to promote the first-ever Brite Winter event. Beer, bands, and blizzards faced the 500 people who showed up in a complete whiteout that year, encouraging the founders to believe that this would be a tradition for many winters to come.

And they were right: this year marks the festival’s ninth installment, as well as what Horsburgh calls its ‘biggest headliner’ yet, Atlas Genius. Since that first event with 500 people, Brite Winter has grown exponentially—necessitating its move from its original Flats East Bank location to Ohio City and now to the West Bank of the Flats. ‘Being right by the river, that location really speaks to Cleveland,’ says Horsburgh."
