As Providence’s signature arts festival marks its fifth year of bringing the community together and elevating local talent, a number of artists also marks their fifth year of participation. Known for bringing together artists from around the corner and across the globe, this festival has also helped local artists develop their art forms, expand their portfolio, and perform their passion for all to see. Providence-based artists Spocka Summa and The Extraordinary Rendition Band (ERB) are a part of this tradition, joining this year’s festival as well-known PVDFest performers and first-time curators.
