Carolina Indie Fest 2023

May 12 @ 5:00 PM - May 13 @ 11:00 PM


Indie Fest 2022

The third annual Carolina Indie Fest returns to downtown Sanford, NC on May 12th and 13th with ten hours of all original rock, glam rock, country, R&B, glitter, grunge and more.  THIS IS A FREE EVENT!

Bands will perform on stage at the rear of Hugger Mugger Brewing (229 Wicker Street in Sanford) surrounded by food trucks, beer trucks and crafty vendors. The brewery will be releasing a special festival beer & will be re-releasing a small portion of the beer brewed for the Fall 2022 festival.  The Fall 2022 beer is Annika’s Pertinaceous Insolent Ale, a traditional English strong ale with a nice caramel finish to keep it from being too bitter.

Our Spring 2023 beer is a Blackberry Kolsch with a name to be determined in a contest that benefits Lending Paws a Hand.  Both beers were brewed in collaboration with festival beer sponsor Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic.

Carolina Indie Fest mostly features artists from across the state but some are on tour from as far away as Indiana. All artists are performing an hour of all original music, no covers, and while some bands are signed to a label others are self-promoting in the original Indie music fashion. Hugger Mugger
Brewing considered over 1,000 submissions in making decisions on festival performers. The festival puts an emphasis on booking bands with an eclectic mix of genres.

Music kicks off on Friday May 12th at 5pm.
