Best of the Fest

“Wow” is the only word we can think of to describe MUSICwestport 2017! From the smash hit of The PepTides at Friday’s kick-off party to the perfect weather and continuous summer sounds from new bands and old favourites. We want to thank everyone who participated in the event from our artists, sponsors, volunteers, and, of course, all those who travelled to Westport to enjoy the music and so much more! See you all next year!
