Project Pabst is set to return in 2017, bigger and better than ever. After launching in Portland in 2014, Project Pabst expanded to a four-city festival series last year. The 2017 series kicks off May 20 in Denver with additional block party-style shows on September 16 in Philadelphia and October 7 in Atlanta, GA. Project Pabst also merged with Portland’s MusicfestNW last year for a sold out, two day event, which is set to return this year on August 26 and 27.
The line-up for the first Project Pabst show of 2017 in Denver includes headline performances from hip hop legend Ice Cube and powerhouse New York duo Phantogram with additional performances from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Danny Brown, STRFKR, Noname and more. The block party event will take place on Larimer Street and tickets for the festival—which sold out in its inaugural year in Denver—will be available this Friday, February 17 at 10am MST. Tickets will be available or $45 (Early Bird), then $55 here. This event is strictly 21 and over.
Project Pabst offers a unique festival experience, incorporating music, art, hands-on interactive elements, as well as food and beer at reasonable “non-festival” prices. Festivalgoers will be entertained with the old school video games in the PBRcade, the PBR Vandalism interactive graffiti art display, and Pabst Wax—an on-the-spot pressing of vinyl recordings that the fans create themselves. Additionally, a local artist from each city will be highlighted on a limited edition Project Pabst 16 oz. can.
