Sidepony Express Music Festival is a three-day showcase of emerging independent musical artists in one of the most quirky, colorful and inspiring places on earth…none other than Bisbee, AZ.
Once a booming copper-mining town, this haunted high-desert destination is nestled in the Mule Mountains of Cochise County about 30 minutes Southeast of the O.K. Corral in Tombstone. Rich with vibrant natural landscapes and majestic Victorian architecture, Bisbee is a feast for the eyes. Whether from all of the minerals in the earth or just the eclectic open-minded populous, the area is magnetic.
In the late 20th century it experienced a renaissance of culture with a large influx of artist residents. Now a haven for left-of-center free-thinkers and an ever-growing art colony, Bisbee is an ideal spot for a festival celebrating underground, original, art-forward music from artists across the genre board.
Genres include (loosely-labeled): indie folk, hip-hop fusion, island jam funk, experimental surf metal, avant-pop dance rock, lo-fi garage jazz, western psychedelic soul, desert noir, and much much more…
The 5th-annual event will be held across multiple venues in Bisbee during the weekend of November 11-13, 2016.
To give you an idea, last year we had 18 unique venues and over 85 bands who each played several times throughout the weekend in different spaces.
This event is open and free to the public.
November 11-13, 2016
Friday Noon – 2am
Saturday 11am – 2am
Sunday Noon – 11pm
