Sad by Sad West II

Lesstalk and Papaiti Records are proud to present SAD by SAD WEST II, a festival about embracing emotion, in music & life, and recognising and appreciating our immediate space and communities.

SAD by aims to present an equal balance by offering a centre where all mediums of art and people involved are celebrated for their inherent value as opposed to economic viability. The SAD by festivals are focused on connecting art communities through shared philosophy rather than genre or medium. Our aim is to create events that showcase art, music and poetry that value connection and challenge divisiveness.

Sad By Sad West II is Ben Rivers’ biggest venture to date. Taking on 3 cities over 3 weeks across 2 countries in multiple unique venues, spaces and restaurants in each city. SAD seeks to find solutions for a sustainable approach to art and the creative process by curating events that benefit our DIY art communities fostering a community focused alternative.
