If winter boredom has seriously set in, and you're looking for something worthy of leaving the house for during yet another round of arctic chill, the 12th annual Cabin Fever Music Festival kicks off on Friday, February 1.
"We are very excited for this year's Festival! We added some great new acts, as well as some returning favorites," Brendon Henry, who co-founded the Festival with Seth Farrell and Paul Fallo, shared. "This will be the 12th season and we will be featured in nine venues including the Legendary Stephen Talkhouse on Saturday, February 9."
This year's Festival will take music lovers to venues from Center Moriches all the way to Amagansett.
"I really feel like this year there is music for everyone, whether you prefer acoustic, hip hop, punk, folk, reggae, or rock n roll, we have something for you," Henry noted. "This has always been a labor of love for all of us, and to see the community so pumped up after all these years is so cool!"
