Organizers seek support to bring back West Asheville music fest All Go West


The All Go West music festival, which started in 2010 and was held annually until last year, may be resurrected this year. The event features local bands and most recently was anchored at ISIS Restaurant and Music Hall. Organizer Arieh Samson is testing the waters and posted the following on WAX:

Hey Waxers, I’m thinking about producing the All Go West Festival again in late June 2016. I can only do it if I have a good amount of support from the community, so we’ll see. In the meantime, I’m curious to know your opinions, thoughts & memories from past AGW’s. What did or didn’t you like about the event? How could it improve? Any general thoughts are welcome. Thank you & happy Monday 2016! – Arieh Samson AGW

All Go West was cancelled for 2015, with organizers citing a lack of support for the event, but it looks like there’s plenty of interest for another try. Perhaps the resurgent economy will help bring it back.
