This past weekend, the vibrant city of Richmond was set ablaze by a stellar lineup of musical talent that left audiences spellbound. From Matthew E. White’s soulful melodies to Kate Bollinger’s ethereal tunes, the cream of the Richmond music scene graced the stage at both DayDream Fest 2023 and Friday Cheers. The air was electric, charged with the energy of passionate performers and enthusiastic fans.

Among the standout acts were Butcher Brown, Palm Palm, Cellar Dwellers, Deau Eyes, DJ Harrison, Ms. Jaylin Brown and the exhilarating sounds of No BS! Brass. These talented musicians proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Richmond is a breeding ground for remarkable musical talent.
