Louisville, KY – Wes Fest 2015 is the second annual large scale Wes Anderson theme party. Wes Fest 2014 took place at The New Vintage and was a SOLD OUT event last year with over 90% of the guests in costume!
Our musicians and dj will be in costume and will be covering music from all 8 of the Wes Anderson film soundtracks (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom and the Oscar nominated, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Sets will include an eclectic mix of music including The Kinks, David Bowie, Iggy and The Stooges, Love, Hank Williams, Vince Guaraldi, The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground, The Clash, Elliott Smith, Devo, The Ramones, The Proclaimers, The Beach Boys, The Faces, Paul Simon and more!
Mercury Ballroom will be decked out in large-scale Anderson style décor, curated by FEVA’s Artistic Director, Stephanie Lindsay, who is also lead designer for the Forecastle Kentucky Bourbon Lodge. We’ll be featuring video art installations, dioramas, sculptures & a Costume Contest with incredible fine art prizes for top 3 costumes!
We’re throwing this event to support the non-profit, Fair Event Vendors Alliance, and to announce the launch of our website & online directory www.fairvendors.org! FEVA aims to connect the LGBT community with Louisville area wedding and event professionals who welcome them as clients and believe in their equality and fair treatment, and to promote the growth and professional development of that community of support in Louisville. All proceeds from the event will go towards FEVA expanding membership, developing workshops and preparing to bring our model to other KY cities in 2016. The FEVA website is www.fairvendors.org and you can find us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/faireventvendorsalliance.
