With more than 2000 visitors the very first annual Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival in 2018 was a big hit. In consequence of that success the event organizers decided to launch year 2 of the music festival. The second CCRB festival took place at Nauset Beach (Outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA) on September 14th, 2019.
Again, I was responsible for the art direction of the festival. I created visuals like a poster, merchandise, the stage backdrop, a festival map, banners and flags, the visualization of the festival website and some more of the CCRB corporate design as well. This time we used a classic car and the local piping plover birds as a key visual illustration. There is also a rendition of G. Love & Special Sauce drawn as birds who are driving along the shore in their truck to meet a bunch of celebrating birds on the beach. Also surfing and the love to the sea and the nature are an essential and recurrent theme again.
I truly appreciate his trust in my work and the opportunity to be a part of the team! THX, G.!
Please visit the website capecodrootsandbluesfestival.com for further information. The 2019 lineup was G. Love & Special Sauce, Citizen Cope, Chadwick Stokes & The Pintos, Mihali (of Twiddle) and Clearcola.
