End of World, Quincy’s sole music and camping festival, will host it’s 4th annual gathering Sept. 24, beginning at noon. The event’s celebrations will last for 24 hours.
Frankie Murphy Giesing, founder of EOW, and 142 volunteers will be working the event.
“This is a refuge from social issues, no politics allowed. It’s one place you can go with no danger,” Murphy Giesing said.
EOW does not allow outside issues to affect the festivities. The gathering will take place on 42 acres of “enchanted forests.”
Attendees are commonly referred to as dwellers and are expected to be stewards of kindness and respect. These dwellers intend to let go of the outside world, and encourage all who attend to live in the moment and participate in a night of no worries.
Musical performances will begin at 2 p.m. and will include over 40 local musical acts. Four local headliners include The Fuller Band, Zeke Cernea with Paul Wood, Blake Gardner and The Farmers and Fielder.
Admission to the event is $20 and can be purchased at the entrance. The fee includes access to the entire event and camping in the forest.The festival is BYOB (bring your own booze) and BYOT (bring your own tent). Rain or shine, the event will continue.
The Butcher Block, Maine Course, and Barney’s of Quincy will be serving food and beer throughout the festivities.
EOW will be located at 7300 Broadway, just before Scottie’s Fun Spot. There is a small gravel road just as you approach the changing speed sign on the right hand side.
