The festival traditionally runs twice a year on both Memorial and Labor Day Weekends. The digital format will allow for new artists that would not normally be able to perform to be part of the festival this Memorial Day Weekend.
The streaming shows begin Friday, May 28 and run nightly from 5PM – 11PM through Monday, May 31. All shows can be viewed at passim.org/campfire with a $15/day suggested donation. Check out Festival artist Lisa Bastoni covering Bob Dylan below.
