Charlotte SHOUT! is upon us, and make no mistake, this festival is packed to the gills with creative-offerings-a-plenty spanning the realms of art, music, food and ideas.
Of course, you’re only one person, right? Which means you can’t be in two, three or four places at once. So how on Earth will you decide what to you should catch at SHOUT!?
Well, rest easy, good Charlottean. We here at The Biscuit are providing you some cover in the form of The Biscuit Lounge – which will be located near the corner of S. Tryon Street and W. 4th Street, May 9-11.
Okay, we’re not providing you “cover,” per se – since this modular, colorful, LED-lit, is-this-place-from-the-future-or-what structure known as “The Biscuit Lounge” doesn’t technically have a roof. (In the future, there will be no precipitation.) But, it’ll be the kind of place where you’ll want to raise the proverbial roof.
Check In at The Biscuit Lounge
It’ll look something like this:
The Biscuit Lounge will serve as a hub where our “Creative Correspondents” will check in as they report on SHOUT! events and activities Thursday through Saturday. You can follow their adventures by checking in on the hashtags #CLTShout and #CharlotteIsCreative.
And, you can use it as your base of operations, too. We’ll have SHOUT! schedules and on-screen agendas so you can plan your activities for the day and decide on the next amazing thing to go see or experience.
Then, there’s the DJs …
To boot, it’ll also feature a bangin’ line-up of local DJs curated by Tip Top Daily Market. NOTE: The schedules below are subject to change.
