BMI’s Wave In Festival Brings Art, Literature and Music to Las Vegas This May
Wave In, the arts, literature and music festival hosted by the Black Mountain Institute, formerly known as Believer Fest, returns to the Las Vegas Valley May 5-7 with an eclectic lineup and, for the first time, free programming for children.
Scheduled to appear are New York Times columnist and bestselling author of Hunger, Roxane Gay; Alex Marzano-Lesnevich, whose award-winning book The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir is currently being developed by HBO; Vietnamese musician Mai Khoi, whose fearless and outspoken music precipitated a government crackdown; and many more, covering artistic disciplines ranging from poetry to illustration to film.
The three-day festival promises to foster discussion on “the ripple effects of human impact on our shared climate, the rising tide of indigenous liberation, the displacement of those seeking refuge, the current pandemic and more” , and how these topics connect and influence each other, through the wide-open prism of the arts.
Tickets for Wave In go on sale March 21 on bmifestival.org.
