About the Festival:
ArtBeat is one of the area’s largest and most innovative arts festivals, with over a dozen bands, dance troupes, 75 craft vendors, food and hatch-themed activities.

Let’s celebrate of all things that loop, encircle, repeat and play back in endless cycles. Various artists and community members explore how looping—the repetition of a pattern, sound or idea—informs a work of art or a concept. “Loops” evoke many things: music that repeats a riff throughout an entire song or performance, dance in which movement suggests circles, looping film shorts, and cylindrical visual works pf art. We will be celebrating circles and all things loops in the Davis Square block repeatedly throughout the festival as well as theatrical performances in which scenes are repeated in Groundhog Day-esque fashion. It’s time to abandon linear thinking! It’s time to loop back.
