An SE2 presented Silent Disco inside Buffalo Iron Works will close out the festival on Saturday evening.
“This year is about bringing everyone together. We do everything in our power to make this experience accessible to all, and we like to think of it as THE summer block party to be at for locals and Northeasterners alike,” says Josh Holtzman, Cobblestone Live festival founder and CEO of Twenty6 Productions. “We at Twenty6 have grown so much in the past two years - running events and festivals on a national level and honing our craft - so we have a whole new level of organization and experience to bring to this year’s festival,” adds Grace Vesneske, Cobblestone Live festival co-owner and President of Twenty6 Productions.
