LEVITATE MUSIC FESTIVAL ARTIST RECEIVES RECOGNITION FROM POLLSTAR MAGAZINE
Levitate Music Festival is proud to announce artist Nathaniel Deas has been awarded third place in Pollstar’s annual poster contest for his 2017 Levitate Festival custom poster design. The nod from Pollstar is the second accolade awarded to Levitate Festival, a sixth-year festival which also received a Pollstar Magazine Music Festival of the Year nomination in 2016. This year’s festival is slated for July 7th-8th, 2018 in Marshfield, MA (just south of Boston).
Since 2004, Pollstar has hosted a poster contest during their annual Pollstar, Live! Conference. This year, more than 80 poster submissions were displayed during the conference and voted on by attendees.
“Each year, Levitate has two posters designed,” explains Thomas Cussins, talent buyer for Levitate Music Festival. “Levitate owner and co-founder, Jessica Hassett, creates the lineup poster, and we do a limited edition artists print, as well. We have worked with Nathaniel Deas on many projects, and last year we asked him to use his creativity to create a design using a skate ramp that was also a wave, using our classic logo. It’s amazing when an artist can take an idea written down on one line, and make it something so spectacular!”
