Posted in music | tour dates on June 26, 2009


"For 4 years now Wham City has been organizing the WHARTSCAPE. What started as a summer warehouse party turned into a much bigger, multi-day outdoor festival with thousands of bands, performers, and folks traveling to Baltimore from all across the US and Europe.
Since, we organize this festival out of pocket and in our spare time, it is important for us to keep it comfortable and enjoyable for us to do. One thing we talked about at the end of last year's festival was shrinking it down slightly and having it feel more community based and familiar.

This year isn't focused around headliners, but mainly performers and friends that make up the community we tour, work and live in.
We are also greatly reducing the number of MEGA-PASSES (the 3 day pass ticket that grants you entry to every show and every day).
ONLY 300 Mega-Passes will be sold; this is the only guarantee that you can see all the shows.

Tickets will be sold to the individual shows, but it is strongly suggested that you buy a Mega-Pass, as it saves you money and assures you take in the entire poo-poo.
Whartscape will take place July 10-11-12 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland Institute College of Art Studio Center Parking Lot, and Load of Fun.
We will begin selling tickets at 12 Noon, Monday, June 29th.

More info and full, 140 band lineup below...


Only the Mega-Pass guarantees entrance to the nighttime events at Load of Fun, which has a much smaller occupancy than the MICA parking lot. Anyone without a Mega-Pass will get in on a first come, first serve basis. There is a very strong likely hood we will sell out of Mega-Passes, which will mean the nighttime portion is also sold out.
The strength of the mega-pass is truly mega.

Baltimore could give a flying fuck what people in NY think of them. We're just a bunch of small city kids that are in it for a good time. What's with the haters?

Seems like Baltimore has a lot more to say about Brooklyn than Brooklyn does about Baltimore.

I mean just look at these quotes:

"The internet is fucking you, brooklyn sucks, you're going to die"

"brooklyn is gay, vegans are fags"

There was nothing comparable said to dis Baltimore. Sounds like you guys down there have a real chip on your shoulder. Get over it. Baltimore's a cool town, Brooklyn's a cool town, nobody up here is looking down their noses at you. Stop chasing phantom snobbery.
