The Astrowalker is a US-based festival with an American-themed theme.
The event is designed to showcase the USA’s rich heritage in music and arts, which has been largely forgotten in the wake of World War II.
In 2018, Astrowalkers will take place in Baltimore, the epicenter of the world’s music and art scene.
The festival is expected to draw upwards of 20,000 people to the city’s historic streets, as well as the city of Baltimore itself.
“It’s an event that’s been designed to bring people together, that’s going to draw a wide range of people from all different backgrounds and experiences,” says festival director David McWilliams.
The Astroaller is a music festival, with a focus on American and Caribbean music.
It has been described as a “major music festival” in a New York Times article.
The inaugural Astrowaller in 2017 was a huge success, with more than 40,000 attendees, according to organizers.
However, the 2018 event is expected only to draw up to 10,000, with many festival attendees saying they won’t be able to attend due to their schedules.
The US has seen several major festivals such as the US Music Awards, USO, Coachella and Outside Lands disappear after Trump was elected.
“We’re trying to do it with the best we can,” McWilliams says.
“This year, we’re not doing the American festival.”
The US Music Festival, the first in the US to host two world-class music festivals in one year, has been in operation since 1972.
According to its website, the festival was founded to “bring music lovers together through a diverse mix of entertainment, education, and social justice.”
McWilliams hopes that by 2019, the Astrowarkers will have created a “more meaningful and welcoming” experience for festival attendees.
“When you think of American music, you think about country music, country dance, country, and country-centric music,” Mc Williams says.
However this year, some festival attendees are not optimistic about the future of the US music festival.
“There’s not a lot of excitement,” McDavid says.
The organisers of the festival, the Maryland Folk Festival, recently announced that it would no longer be hosting its annual festival.
The reason, the organizers explained, was because the event was not attracting enough money from sponsors.
McWilliams believes that the lack of money to keep the festival going was due to the fact that many festivals have already closed.
“I’m sure they want to keep it going but that’s not going to happen if it’s not financially viable,” he says.
According a report by the Baltimore Sun, Astroyallers has been the only major US festival to cancel its annual events.
McWilliam says he expects to continue operating the festival as a separate event from the Maryland festival.
However he adds that he is optimistic about a potential revival of the American Music Festival.
“If you go back a few decades, the American music industry was very different than it is today,” McWilliam explains.
“The people that were really in charge of the industry were really artists and they were very focused on getting their music out there.”
He says the Astroyalls’ current festival will continue to highlight the music, culture and diversity of the United States.
“As we look back at the past and try to make it better, that will be the way we will do it,” McWills says.
