Last year we added more stages and bands, all of which you can read about at the Awesome Day 2014 round up here. This year we’ve partnered with Great Scott, Wonder Bar, The Model Cafe, and O'Brien's. 27 bands, 4 stages, and copious amounts of BBQ during the day.

The Story of Awesome Day

Awesome Day Fest is a day long party celebrating the music, art and spirit of Allston “Rock City”, MA. With bands and BBQ during the day and rock at night we hope that folks will come out, spend the day with us and experience what makes Allston, MA so special. Make a day of it!

Awesome Day Fest 2015 has already been getting love from the likes of Vanyaland and Bishop and Rook. Check out some press for Awesome Days past from Boston.com, The Improper Bostonian, Boston Herald, Bishop and Rook, Vanyaland, and Allston Pudding!
"We thought peak awesome was finally reached [at the 2014 Awesome Day Fest]. We were wrong."
