Event organizers say they’re piecing together the final plans. They said they planned the festival because Eugene needs a special event like this.
“I think Eugene has a very unusual and eclectic culture. There’s a culture here and a subculture here and one of them in relation to the arts. I think it’s worth celebrating Eugene because Eugene has so much talent,” said Krysta Albert, Festival of Eugene producer.
Twenty four bands will perform at the festival on Friday and Saturday.
