Once again, MSMFest is coming to the Morristown community park this summer. For the eighth consecutive year, MSMFest has been giving music lovers of all ages a summer to remember.
The festival was started by Jason Chisham, when he wanted to bring something special to his hometown of Morristown that also included the thing he loved most, music. For eight years now, Chisham has devoted countless amounts of blood, sweat, and tears into the festival. As well as so many others who have helped make everything happen over the years. With people who have helped behind the scenes, as well as a whole team of volunteers each year, the planning of the festival is a team effort with Chisham being the ringleader in the madness of MSMFest.
Some of the MSMFest alumni include, Tiny Moving Parts, Real Friends, Modern Baseball, Indian City Weather, Hotelier, and so many more. With the numbers reaching over one hundred bands almost every year, they do not disappoint with their variety of music.
When I was 16, MSMFest was my first local endevour. I was fresh into the music community and the first experience of a local crowd and music came from this festival. Now, here I am, 4 years later, and I'm writing about the festival on my own website, to my own viewers. I can truly and honestly say that without MSMFest, I would not have the experience I do, and I wouldn't be where I am without having them to break me into the music community.
I was honored with the opportunity a few years back to do interviews at the fest for my old music media site, and being involved with that festival was truly the most rewarding and enjoyable experience I have ever had.
Now, you might be asking yourself, "Why are they talking about a summer festival in December?". Well, I will tell you, imaginary half of this conversation. We want YOU to get involved!!
MSMFest is currently accepting submissions from bands to play. So it doesn't matter where you are from, the genre you are, YOU can submit your band to play.
