This year is the 30th edition of Bele Chere, Asheville’s annual summer street party, and the Mountain Xpress has gone all out to bring you the best the festival has to offer.
Mountain Xpress offers the official festival guide, which visitors can find on the street around the festival and at the Xpress booth, on the corner of Battery Park Avenue and Haywood Street. Online, Xpress has a Web cam, photo galleries, streaming music by bands playing Bele Chere and a Twitter feed so you can follow updates anywhere you go.
Speaking of the Mountain Xpress booth—there’s a whole line-up of music there, as well as the big stages scattered around downtown. The booth line-up Saturday includes Johnson’s Crossroad at 1 p.m., Wind Motika at 2 p.m., Andrea Lee at 3 p.m., Leigh Glass at 4 p.m., The Cheeksters at 4:45 p.m., Dehlia Low at 5:30 p.m., Biko at 6:15 p.m. and Hunab Krewe at 7 p.m.
See you at the festival.
