Best New Festival: Future Fest

This two-day festival at Windup Space and Hour Haus, organized by Radell Moyd-Kane, heavily focused on experimental black acts in the realm of hip-hop, metal, punk, dance, club, and noise and included acts Black Zheep, ANML, Al Rogers Jr., Butch Dawson, and Hi$to and out-of-towners with ties to the city including Cities Aviv and Pictureplane. It seemed to further feed the multitudes-filled festival vibes of Ratscape and the fusion-oriented lineups established by KAHLON. Most important, Future Fest was just well-organized, well-curated, and well-timed—the same weekend as the Publications and Multiples Fair and on Friday night, its first night, the closing reception for Victoria Fu’s Bubble Over Green, which itself felt like an extension of the boundary-pushing sounds of Future Fest.
