Future Chord Fest 2017 Takes A Giant Leap Forward

For a second straight year, Future Chord Fest returned to The Spinning Jenny in Upstate, South Carolina -- this time with nearly twice the crowd size as the inaugural year and a sharpened focus on a diverse, hyperlocal lineup built around standout Charlotte indie rock headliners Junior Astronomers.

Memorable performances included the very last show by beloved Greenville college rock revivalists The Francis Vertigo; a collaborative set between Spartanburg indie-emo thumpers The Apartment Club and hip-hop head Ty Graves; and the final 2017 show from Anderson-based outfit Beket. 

Carving a name as one of the brightest up-and-coming indie festivals in the Southeast, Future Chord Fest looks to top itself once again in 2018.
