Latitude 43 Music Festival to showcase 14 bands over three days at Artpark; proceeds to benefit the Variety Kids Telethon
The Latitude 43 Music Festival will settle into its new home in the Outdoor Amphitheater at Artpark in Lewiston this June. The event, formerly known as PubFest, will continue its tradition of raising money for the Variety Kids Telethon.
Organizer Ken Scibetta of The Griffon Gastropub has upped the ante this year. The Latitude 43 Music Festival will be headlined by five national recording artists, and features nine local acts spread across three days (June 13-15). There will be a different theme for every day (Friday blues, Saturday rock and Sunday country).
The event includes food vendors and, additionally, on Saturday and Sunday, activities for kids will be available from 2-5 p.m.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, April 25, at 10 a.m. They can be purchased online at www.artpark.net or www.tickets.com; by phone at 716-754-4375 or 1-888-223-6000; and in person at the Artpark box office, 450 S. Fourth St.
