Blue Bridge Music Festival Returns for ArtPrize Nine


After a successful first year, the Blue Bridge Music Festival is returning for ArtPrize Nine.

The festival returns Sept. 29 – 30 at the Blue Bridge in downtown Grand Rapids. A slew of performances will span the two-day festival.

The festival is produced in partnership between ArtPrize, HopCat and WYCE 88.1FM. It is free to attend.

All participating musicians are eligible for the ArtPrize Nine public vote competition in the time-based category. The ArtPrize public will also have the opportunity to award competing musicians with an additional prize.
