Music and arts booking group Waking Windows announced Thursday the return of its flagship annual music festival. Now in its 12th year, the Waking Windows Music Festival will take place in downtown Winooski from May 3-5 and will feature more than 100 artists at multiple venues, including restaurants, wine shops, breweries and pop-ups shop.

The group, managed by Brian and Ali Nagle, Paddy Reagan, Matt Rogers and Nick Mavodones, launched the festival in 2011 when it was held entirely at the Monkey House. It has grown steadily in size over the years as organizers have brought together a host of local talent as well as underground and indie bands from out of state such as Pond, Japanese Breakfast, Kikagaku Moyo and Dinosaur Jr. and another stage set up at Winooski Rotary Park.

After a two-year hiatus in 2020 and 2021, the festival returns in 2022 to celebrate its belated tenth anniversary with a streamlined lineup, a trend that continued the following year.

While no acts have been announced yet, this year’s lineup will be similar in scope to the past two years. “It will be smaller, similar to 2023,” according to the press release. Plus: “We have some great artists lined up and all our friends will be there.”
