Press Release: MARSHFIELD, MA – August 27, 2019

All dates will feature local opening acts in each location – Ward Hayden & The Outliers and SIXFOXWHISKEY in Marshfield, Jason Spooner Band and Town Meeting in Portland, and Buckle & Shake on Nantucket.
Alongside a line-up full of jam worthy music, the brand will highlight it’s release of a special edition fall 2019 line of flannel button-downs for men, women, and children, thus the name “Flannel Jam.” True to Levitate’s roots of curating events for the whole family, each stop on the tour features a hot spiked cider cocktail lounge, special craft releases by local breweries, food trucks, hot cider donuts, and a kids hay maze and corn pool. In an effort to continue its mission to elevate communities with music and art, Levitate will feature local artisan and craft vendors and partners at each venue.
Levitate is proud to work with community partners to include Maine Craft Distilling, The Shop by Island Creek Oysters, Oxbow Brewery and Austin St. Brewery in Portland, ME, and Cisco Brewers on Nantucket. The
Marshfield event will feature a special edition Jack Daniels whiskey release, and proceeds of the Nantucket event will benefit the Nantucket Conservation Foundation, whose mission is to preserve the island for everyone.
