The Waking Windows Music & Arts Festival returns May 1-3, 2020 to downtown Winooski for the 10th (!) installment of what Seven Days describes as “simply the coolest music festival in Vermont.” As we hit the double digits, Waking Windows shan’t fix what isn’t broken: our M.O. has always been to push festival programming in exciting and adventurous new directions, bring eclectic artists to our state, and shine a spotlight on the ones we’re lucky to call fellow Vermonters. We aim to keep that going in 2020 and beyond, and thank you for your support through the last decade.
This year, Waking Windows is thrilled to announce headlining performances from magnetic synth sensations Future Islands (who played the very first Waking Windows) and the inventive cosmic pop of Japanese Breakfast.
Weekend Windows Passes are available now for $75 via URL (our website) or IRL without fees (Monkey House, Pure Pop Records, Autumn Records). Visiting from out of state? We’ve got discounted rooms awaiting your reservation at Hotel Vermont in on the Burlington / Lake Champlain waterfront. These typically fill up quickly, so we’ve added more this year, but act fast!
