About the Design

This year marks four festivals with the very talented designer Brian Steely. Our main focus with the 2020 artwork is the Festival Tower. Since 2012, the Festival Tower has served as an art piece, a meeting place and the heart of the festival grounds.

The area the tower stands on was very much inspired by nature and designed to resemble the spirals seen in centres of sunflowers or pinecones and the tower is a swirling extension of this geometry. The shape of the tower resembles many things like a flower, a campfire and the saddle form of festival stage covers.

Did you know that you can actually play the Festival Tower? Each post in the tower supports a playable sounding tube tuned to a note in the pentatonic 5 note and heptatonic scales!

Steely did a brilliant job illustrating such an important part of the festival. He tied it together with the rays of the sun, the light of the moon, a strum of the banjo and twinkling stars. We’re so excited to share it with you and we hope you love it as much as we do!
