Brian Alli, Roland’s VP of Artist Relations, provides his insight into Starry Nites:
The intermingling of artists and concert-goers onsite was casual and natural. At one point, I walked into our interactive gear lounge and saw members of Strawberry Alarm Clock and The Dandy Warhols jamming on our new gear alongside a group of kids. The Roland, BOSS, and V-MODA teams took great pleasure in hosting the fans and artists in a space that inspired musical exploration in between the scheduled performances.

The Starry Nites Festival was unique in that it broke down the usual barriers that separate performers from audience members. With its thousands of attendees and wide array of musical acts including Alan Parsons and The Kills, it was certainly a special event and one to look forward to for next year.
