If any band proves that adversity makes you stronger, it’s our Main Stage headliner Everclear and its frontman, Art Alexakis. Listen to the lyrics on their albums Sparkle and Fade, featuring Santa Monica, and So Much For the Afterglow, featuring I Will Buy You a New Life and Father of Mine, and you get a picture of a survivor who faced challenge after challenge and turned it into platinum. The band continues rock hard, with 2015’s Black is the New Black, and Alexakis continues to fight for people in need. We’re proud and honored to welcome Everclear to the Main Stage.
