DJ Marcus Aurelius invites everyone to come out and to bring "their kids, their dogs, a great attitude, a willingness to discover new things and have their brains split open by seeing things they have never seen before.”

The Opening Freakout music festival is the prelude to the Urban Nomad Film Fest, which takes place May 17-27. The Film Fest will present films from local filmmakers and filmmakers from nearby countries.
