The sun is setting earlier, the nights are getting cooler, summer is in our rearview mirror. The days of outdoor concerts and festivals are coming to a close for the season, it is time to get your last kicks in now or forever (a couple months) hold your peace.
On Saturday, September 18th the fourth annual Monstercat Compound is set to take place. Live music, food trucks, beer gardens, and other activities are going to turn Railtown into a day long block party.
With two stages to choose from, the artist lineup is as follows: on the Monstercat stage: The Funk Hunters, Tony Romera, Sabai, Eminence, OBLVYN, Rylan Taggart, and Sam Steele. On the Westwood Recordings stage: Defunk, Jessu and Pyka, Kotek, Case of the Mondays, Shylow, Sivz, and SoSus.
On top of the huge selection of music over the seven hour festival, there will also be an assortment of places to eat and drink, carnival games, and The Gaming Stadium will be providing a gaming zone, including Rocket League, Just Shapes and Beats, Street Fighter, and Mortal Combat.
