Awesome Day 2015 bannerThe Rockers are throwing another party!!!!! Midriff Records is thrilled to once again be a part of bringing you Awesome Day Fest 2015.  This year Awesome Day Fest will be held on Saturday May 30, 2015 in “The Aspen of the East” beautiful Allston, Massachusetts.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!!!  The ADF2015 website is now live.  Please check in there for all bands, venue, tix and sponsor info!!! Read about the bands and see all the fun we are gonna have!   Go to for all further info and updates!!!


Awesome Day Fest was started by our friend  Jesse Sherman years ago. This year we are helping out again to organize and co-curate the day and we are thrilled.  In past years Awesome Day has been a day into night bill taking place exclusively at the legendary O’Briens Pub on Harvard Ave in Allston, MA. The afternoon is always accompanied by copious amounts of BBQ on the OB’s back patio and the best rock Boston has to offer on the stage.

Last year we added more stages and bands, all of which you can read about at the Awesome Day 2014 round up here.  This year we’ve partnered with Great Scott , Wonder Bar,  and The Model Cafe as well as Obriens.

Awesome Day Fest is a day long party celebrating the music, art and spirit of Allston “Rock City”, MA.  With bands and BBQ during the day and rock at night we hope that folks will come out, spend the day with us and experience what makes Allston, MA so special. Make a day of it!

While we are just gearing up we wanted you to know where to come to get all the info you’d need for Awesome Day Fest 2015.  Ticketing for individual shows and “all venue” wristband info will be available soon.  We will be updating this page regularly as bands and venues are added so check back often.  We will also be updating via our Facebook and Twitter pages when announcements arise.  We’ll be updating graphics, sponsors, a whole lot of stuff… but what we can confirm are the bands who are scheduled to play Awesome Day Fest 2015. They are below.  Check back for more!
