June 14-17, 2018 Steel Bridge Songfest Sturgeon Bay

Deathfolk at Makers Space – SBSF 2017

A four day explosion of music in downtown Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, this one-of-a-kind festival features local, national, and international artists, performing all original music. They call it, “music so fresh, it hasn’t been written yet” – which is true! The songwriters gather each night the week leading up to the festival, spinning the whiskey bottle to pick “teams.” Then they write and record a song a night per group, preparing to perform these co-written songs (as well as their own original work) at a variety of venues during the pub crawl on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and on the main stage at the Holiday Music Motel on Saturday and Sunday. Get your Weekend Pass for $25 to see over 100 bands and solo artists at Steel Bridge Songfest!
