“When 100,000 people descend on a music festival, what stories do they bring with them?
Sara is an aspiring photographer and sometimes server that’s always in search of her next adventure. She’s prone to taking leaps no matter what the cost, and her infectious passion trumps all else. Wherever she’s headed, you hope she’s asks you to join.
Kenneth “Cobweb” Griffin was a dope MC. He probably still is. But he’s also a dope suburban Dad with an adorable daughter and a prestigious day job. You think you know a lot about hip-hop? You won’t after you listen to Kenneth for five minutes.
When Travis was in high school, he checked into the hospital for a routine back procedure. He left in a wheelchair, paralyzed by a surgical error. He now devotes himself to his studies, live music, and poetry, emanating more swagger than his able-bodied friends combined.
When you picture the kind of twenty something that dedicates their life to attending festivals, you picture Jill & her friends. Flat brims, tie-dye rave gear, and a desire to find higher meaning in their festival-going hobby. But Jill’s a recovering heroin addict, and it’s her attendance at EDM-heavy festivals that keep her sober. It’s as counter-intuitive as it sounds.
Austin once looked the part of a foolish festival kid, backpack seemingly full of drugs and a presumed disregard for the reality of any potential consequence. But he knows. He served 3 years for refusing to give up his acid supplier after falling in a sting operation. And it only got worse. But now Austin’s out, sober, healing himself and those like him by producing the same events he used to cruise as a dealer.
Barbara’s from Poland, by way of Munich, where she developed her devotion to electronic music. In choosing a US destination where she could immerse herself in the English language, Barbara chose Chicago for its place in house music history. She hasn’t left, embracing a message board community of like-minded disciples that serves as her only social link to the city she lives in.
Possibly the most mature 22-year-old music nerd you’ll ever meet. An upwardly mobile young professional and proud of it. When she’s not commuting to her B2B Sales job, she’s meticulously planning her festival summer schedule. Every fest season, she hosts a group of friends on her living room floor, playing scout mom, planning meals and determining the perfect combination of sets to attend.”

“The main objective of this event is to support our local area and all the good that comes out of it. We support local music, local art, local farms, local business, local economy and local sustainability. This event began in August of 2011 with the wedding plans of a Forestport, NY couple, Stephen and Kellie Fletcher, who instead of a traditional reception, decided to organize an open to the public three day music festival in celebration of all the friends, family, fellow musicians, artists and community that supported them along the way.
The result was outstanding. More than 20 local bands and musicians such as SLUG, Funktional Flow, The Crazy Fools, Suns of the Empire and so many more came out and volunteered their time and talent to make the weekend special. In the months after the memorable event, the buzz kept going for many of the local bands involved and they continued to get exposure through pictures, video and audio recordings as well as through fondly recalled stories told by guests of the festival.
This inspired the Forestport couple, to not only organize the event again the following year, but to put the focus on the local community that truly created it. The idea of Fletch Fest 2012 and its mission was an inspiration to many who shared the couple’s motivation for the cause. The festival was hosted by the local band SLUG who was joined by many local acts such as Acoustically Speaking, Sassafrass Jenkins, Waydown Wailers and BADDOGG.
The featured act of the weekend was an explosive finale by the legendary ‘New Riders of the Purple Sage’ who came out from southern California to help support the cause. Many artisans and businesses from throughout the Central New York area also got involved and supported the event. With such great post-event feedback, the event was declared a success and ideas and dreams began to form for Fletch Fest 2013.”
