There’s something for everyone at #HWF2015, the City’s most eclectic two-day street festival featuring over 90 acts performing on 5 stages on November 21 & 22.
This week’s kHWF Radio MixTape is curated by Andrew Youngblood, co-founder of The Secret Group, which will open a new comedy venue in 2016 with the goal of fostering the local community of artists, comedians and more alongside national acts. He’s always been a pop punk nerd at heart, so this MixTape showcases some of the best punk and rock bands coming to #HWF2015. Youngblood, one of the featured comedy performers at this year’s festival, also threw Doug Benson to the mix and “highly” recommends you listen to those tracks around 4:20 p.m.
