It started as a way to fill a bad booking weekend in 1998, but now after 20 years, the campfire. festival has become the single-biggest way that Passim develops new talent and celebrates the Boston area’s amazing music scene. Originally called, “On the Cutting Edge of the Campfire,” the festival combined the idea of artists sitting around the campfire playing music with our commitment to bringing new talent to discerning listeners. Today, the campfire. festival is as much about the community as it is about the music. “In the round” performances with songwriters swapping tunes are as common as solo and band sets throughout the course of each day of the festival.
The Labor Day ’19 festival line-up HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED! See below.
All seating is General Admission. Please note there may be times that the room reaches capacity. If that happens, no one else will be allowed in, even if you’ve already purchased a pass. The room does not stay full for long, and generally seats will open up at the end of a set. Schedule subject to change.
All sets of the campfire. festival take place in our venue at 47 Palmer Street, Cambridge, MA.
Drinks available during all hours of the festival.
Food available Friday 5pm-10pm, Saturday 2pm-10pm, Sunday 10am-10pm, & Monday 5pm-10pm.
