Singers, songwriters, musicians, and other performers gather on Swans Island each year for this annual music fest that includes a bit of this and a touch of that, all flavored by the sea. Not the easiest to get to, unless you have a boat, but spill-over performances and dances happen on Vinalhaven and the mainland, too. As the festival’s site states: “The Sweet Chariot Music Festival: not for the faint of heart. Bring your boat, your voice, your moxie, your mojo.”
When: early August
Where: Swans Island, accessible via ferry from Bass Harbor, on Mount Desert Island (note: on-island lodging is very limited).

Where: Bangor waterfront
The largest Out Music festival in Maine (and perhaps far beyond), Frantasia is an exploration in sound, music, movement, and visual arts. If you’re scratching your head on that, organizer Fran Szostak (Fran-tasia, get it?) describes Out Music as that which falls outside the boundaries of the usual genres. Drop any preconceived ideas of what a particular genre should be or how a specific instrument should sound, and be prepared for anything.
When: Usually third weekend in August.
Where: Livermore Falls area
This isn’t folk as in Peter, Paul, and Mary, but rather a celebration of the multicultural folk traditions found in America today. Performers share their music, dance, and storytelling traditions on four stages complemented by displays and demonstrations of traditional crafts, and much more.

Where: Riverfront, downtown Bangor
