Thursday morning in the 8am hour, I will be joined on air by Trevor from Trouble in the Wind- one of the bands performing at the Same Same But Different Music Festival happening this weekend.
From the organizers of the festival: Same Same But Different is a two-day music & arts festival in Lake Perris, CA built to celebrate what makes us all different and unique, something the world really needs more of these days. This year our goal is to disrupt the current echo-chamber effect that social media, the news and society has created. We strive to push each other to listen to one another again as human beings, whether or not we agree on every topic.
To do this we are creating an incredible curated lineup from many music genres together on two alternating stages in beautiful Lake Perris, California. Having one stage as the focal point encourages festival goers to explore beyond genres they normally would listen to, and to embrace the unique experience different artists have to offer.
In the same way different genres can be appreciated if they’re listened to with open ears, differing opinions on social, political and moral issues can also be appreciated if they’re listened to with open minds. If we start there, perhaps we can find common ground with each other.
