'Musicians of Marysville' Festival kicks off Aug. 20

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Boys & Girls Club will be rocking with the beat of eight hours of live musical acts from throughout the state, and even some bands from California, during the first-ever "Musicians of Marysville" Festival on Aug. 20.

The lineup will run from noon through 8 p.m. and organizers aim to attract between 400 to 1,000 attendees to the Boys & Girls Club, located at 1010 Beach Ave.

Marysville resident Adam Þór Brjánnsson came up with the event to celebrate the arts in a way that would fit his hometown and bring the community together.

To that end, the festival will be free to all attendees, as well as non-profit, youth-sponsored, family-oriented and completely drug- and alcohol-free.

Kevin Greeley, head promoter for the event, added that the lineup of bands will be joined by a number of filmmakers, photographers, dancers, painters and potters who are also set to attend.
