The Nines Festival

The NINES is a multi-arts, multi-stage festival located 38 miles west of Boston on the bucolic athletic grounds of Willard Field in Devens, MA on August 10th, 2013.

The all ages, all day festival presents a diverse lineup of nationally touring and emerging musical performers with no overlapping sets, and showcases the works of established and emerging visual artists with art installations, exhibits, interactive art projects, and unique crafts.


My experience at the Nines was overwhelmingly positive. For a first-time fest, it was remarkably well organized and executed. The art was immersive – if you weren’t crowded around one of the two stages, you were never far from a moving art piece or the comedy tent. Most of all, there was something humble and friendly about the Nines that other festivals lack. Maybe it’s because it took place so close to my own home, but there was truly something special happening in little Devens. Fingers crossed that it can happen again.
