It’s official. We survived Solid Sound Festival weekend. Not only did we survive, but we succeeded in putting on a music festival that made a big impression on everyone who attended. Over the past few days we have been inundated with positive feedback from the festival so we thought we’d share a few of our favorite comments here.
From the Twitter Feed:

Excerpts From E-mail:
“Wow! Just wanted to drop a note to say great job to you and your¬†staff, and to the city of N Adams. You took a big risk and it paid off¬†huge. The festival was well thought out. Myself and my son had a weekend¬†of memories that will last a lifetime. I can’t think of a thing you¬†could have done better.”
“I just wanted to thank Mass MoCA for running the most organized music¬†festival I’ve ever attended. ¬†It was a wonderful experience for our¬†whole family, and we will definitely be back to North Adams to spend¬†more time. ¬†Your volunteers and staff were unusually friendly and¬†helpful – the weekend definitely exceeded all expectations I had for¬†what would happen when so many people descended on your town!”
“You rock! We had the BEST weekend ever. It was evident how much you put into this whole event. It was incredible. So many great musicians. Everyone who worked there couldn’t have been nicer or more professional. The grounds and set up were gorgeous and clean. And we noticed every extra detail you labored over. Thanks so much.”
“I attended the Solid Sound Festival this past weekend and I just¬†wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much I (and my¬†friends) thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an absolute delight.. The¬†bands, the galleries, the venue, the food, EVERYTHING, was absolutely¬†fantastic. Could not have been better! It was my first visit to the Mass MoCA and it certainly lived up to my¬†expectations. I was blown away by the innovation and quality of the¬†grounds and the galleries.”
Thanks to everyone who helped us make the Solid Sound Festival run so smoothly!
