The 32nd Annual MayFair
Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Boston has a long, proud history of churning out really excellent bands.  Some have gone on to enjoy significant commercial success and many others have gone on to have long, successful careers outside of the mainstream.  Part of the reason so many bands come to Boston is our city’s embrace of music in all its forms.  Next weekend is a good example of what I’m talking about.

Sunday, May 3rd is the 32nd Annual MayFair festival in Harvard Square.  This free, all day event includes an impressive line up of some of Boston’s favorite local acts including The Sheila Divine, Freezepop, Bent Shapes, M’Bolo, Air Traffic Controller, Hallelujah The Hills, Grey Season, the Luxury, Vundabar, Funeral Advantage, Parks, and the Novel Ideas.  All twelve bands will play on two different stages between 12PM and 6PM while various vendors and events take place in Harvard Square. The event is free and open to the public. ​​
