The 2007 Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival is fast upon us, beginning this Thursday, May 10th. This week’s podcast episode features 10 more great bands playing at the festival as well as portions of an interview we conducted with the festival’s founders. In the interview, we discuss how the festival got started and the inspiration behind it, as well as how the festival continues to grow in its 11th year.

All of our Mission Creek coverage can be found at our dedicated Mission Creek site, where we’ll be bringing you daily show previews starting on Wednesday. Until then, you can head there to check out our calendar for MCMAF show dates, our past episodes featuring MCMAF artists and more!
