FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 28th, 2012
Indie West Fest is announcing its second year with an expanded, four-day event of music, movies, and a new venue – the beautiful Ventura Theater. The line-up for 2012 includes: “X”, The Smithereens, Dengue Fever, Gardens & Villa, The Muffs, The Ettes, Old Man Markley, JetStream, Gypsy Death Star, The Pullmen, Jackass, Durango 95, La Vonettes, Whiskey Glass Eye, Pangea, and Massenger.

Last year, Indie West Fest debuted as a bold, diverse, and independently-operated alternative to the agendas of other regional festivals with 36 bands on 5 stages. Drawing from national and local talent, Indie West Fest producer Michael Jones keeps the music fan first in mind, and as a result, expanded this year’s event to accommodate genre-targeted concert nights, and explore a new indoor environment with the Ventura Theater.

Thursday, July 26 will feature local bands from the Ventura area, and the lineup will be announced soon.
