The only real desire was to make a festival that we wouldn’t be miserable at.” A local man explains the impact of the festival on the local community, “Mass MoCA coming in, and all the artists, are the saviors of this town….they are the new life blood.”Check out a trailer for Every Other Summer:last_img
