Cool Hunting Video Presents: Whartscape

An extension of Baltimore's Wham City, the annual Whartscape festival features bands like Ponytail, Double Dagger and Dan Deacon

Homegrown in Baltimore,
is a touring music festival featuring nearly one hundred bands, thousands of attendees and a lot of sweat. We were lucky enough to be there for the 3rd annual Whartscape and caught several performances including Ponytail, Double Dagger, Girl Talk and Dan Deacon, the festival’s co-founder and main impresario. In an interview with him conducted over iChat, he explains how the police inspired the festival, why people often participate in his shows and the future.
