Boston En Masse returns in 2017 with two-stage, all-day festival at ONCE Ballroom


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

After taking a break last year, Illegally Blind Presents’ Boston En Masse festival is back for 2017 with a new venue, multiple stages, and one impressive lineup.

The independent, locally-focused fest lands April 29 at ONCE Ballroom in Somerville, and the lineup (as of now) features nine bands, artists, and collectives including Beeef, Gem Club, What Cheer? Brigade, Roz & The Ricecakes, Lina Tullgren, Oompa, People Like You, Haasan Barclay, and everyone’s new favorite band (by 2018 the latest), Birthing Hips.

“The goal of Boston En Masse is to bring people together to celebrate a few of the many talented artists that often play shows locally and to introduce people to new bands & friends,” writes Illegally Blind. “It is a one day event featuring two stages.”
