The inaugural Nines Festival had a bit of something for everybody. The music selection was diverse, the grounds were decorated with local art instillations, and the comedy tent left everyone in stitches. And most importantly, everyone who took the trip to Devens was there to have a good time. Every single act brought an amazing energy and vibe to the occasion and the RadioBDC team and I certainly enjoyed ourselves.

I arrived in Devens just in time to see local pals, Air Traffic Controller kick off the festival on the Lucky Cat Stage. We were excited to hear ATC would be representing Boston after winning their spot in the lineup, and they truly did Boston proud. One of the biggest draws of The Nines Festival had to be Delta Spirit who brought a spirited, yet down-to-earth tone to the day. After being able to sit and talk with them before their set, I can confirm they are seriously the coolest dudes. But the highlight of Saturday’s festivities was undoubtedly K. Flay’s clever and high-energy performance. She owned the Lucky Cat stage with her raw, electric beats and brutally honest lyrics. Honestly, I was hooked after watching her own the stage and meeting and interviewing her solidified my obsession.

You can listen to all the interviews from Saturday below.
