WHUP is pleased to partner with Sleepy Cat Records and Down Yonder Farm in Hillsborough for the Second Annual Sleepy Fest, a day of local music, art and all-ages fun! Last year we served as the primary media sponsor for the event that spotlights the collaborative community of musicians under the Sleepy Cat banner, and we were honored to be asked to reprise that role in 2023. The event runs from 11 am to 10 pm and takes place at Down Yonder Farm, a gorgeous spot in rural northern Orange County that serves as a retreat and workshop space for writers and artists.
This year’s musical lineup expands beyond the Sleepy Cat label roster. Among the area artists and bands performing on the two Sleepy Fest stages are Dante High, Joseph Decosimo & Friends, Dunums, Chessa Rich, Kamara Thomas, Wild Actions, Nightblooms and the collective Sleepy Cat House Band. Other highlights include a collection of spoken word artists reading in The Neptune Room, an art and makers market with local artisans and small businessfolks, a kidz zone with nature activities and an array of food and beverages both alcoholic and non.
Down Yonder Farm is located at 813 Lipscomb Grove Church Rd. in Hillsborough. For more information and tickets, please visit the Sleepy Fest website. See you there!
