Music is Art a success in Delaware Park

By Chris Jamele


Buffalo, NY – Twelve hours of great music were on display in Delaware Park on Saturday.

The ninth annual Music is Art Festival was moved to a new home at Shakespeare Hill in the park, and fans appeared to embrace the new surroundings. Festival founder Robbie Takac, also a founding member of the Goo Goo Dolls, believes that Music is Art is not only great for the audiences but also benefits the performers.

The bands were primarily local, but there was talent on stage from Toronto. The festival included not just music but also artist displays and dance performances.

There were five stages providing continual entertainment.
