Courtney Barnett’s Here and There festival is a touring festival to 15 locations across North America with a rotating lineup featuring many of the most exciting songwriters in music today. Barnett takes the festival to Frost with Japanese Breakfast, Chicano Batman, and Julia Jacklin.
“When I was a kid I would make mix-tapes and dream up my own festivals,” Barnett says. “I’d even design the t-shirts and pair up musicians for iconic collaborations. I’d listen to the mix-tape and pretend it was the live recording of a concert, all my favorite artists on stage together. 10 years ago I wrote this lyric: ‘I got lost somewhere between here and there, I’m not sure what the town was called.’ Whether that was meant to be interpreted as a geographical, emotional or philosophical journey, I thought it was the perfect title for my roaming festival."
