PorchFest Lakeview is a community-building festival featuring local musicians performing on front porches within a two block radius of the Southport & Lincoln intersection. Lakeview residents will volunteer their porches to host the concerts, and local musicians will perform on the porches at specified times. We’ll have food trucks, kids activities, local beer, and great times with the community! This event is free to attend. Special thanks for the support from our sponsor Capital One Café.

Get Involved!

HOST: If you have a porch or stoop within two blocks of the Southport/Lincoln/Wellington intersection, sign up to host! You can choose if you would like acoustic or electric artists to play on your porch, and you can pick the time frame for when you would like to host. All you have to do is invite your friends and neighbors, hang out on your lawn and enjoy some live music! Sign up to host here: https://goo.gl/forms/li90YqtsT4Oi9NJs2

PLAY: If you are a musician, sign up to perform! Each artist will perform a 45-minute set, and we will try to pair you with a porch that works for you band size and power needs. You will need to bring all the sound equipment needed for your set, and there will be another artist paired on the porch where you are performing so there is the opportunity to share equipment. Artists participate on a volunteer basis, but are welcome to put out a tip jar during their performance. Sign up to play here: https://goo.gl/forms/G6FSnyzjosqWiK4Y2

VOLUNTEER: Volunteers are needed to help with event setup, managing artist performances on various porches, assisting with activities, and welcoming the Lakeview community to the event. If you are interested in volunteering at the event or if you have any questions, email [email protected]
