Returning for a fourth year, and second at The Basement East, the annual Memorial Day weekend Mayday Fest boasts its best lineup ever for 2016, featuring performances from Space Capone, Escondido, Mike Floss, Andrew Combs, Tristen, Chrome Pony, a Daft Punk Superjam with members of Cherub and Methdad, and so much more, all weekend long, May 27-29. This year, things are meticulously curated, with each night taking something of a different sonic slant. Friday’s bill skews indie rock, dance rock, and garage rock; Saturday leans indie folk, singer-songwriter, and indie pop; while Sunday skews electronic, hip hop, and electro-rock. Tickets are available in both weekend and single day (Fri, Sat, & Sun), so you can catch a slice or the whole pie, whatever suits your fancy! We’ve written about virtually every artist on the lineup, but, in case you need a refresher, we have a preview of their tunes below!
