We are so stoked to head into our 3rd and most impressive year of Capulet Fest this June 28-30! Our lineup is stacked, and our eyes are fixed on the future! It brings us a great sense of joy and awe to know that this is the culmination of over 10 years of dreaming, believing, and working hard. Capulet exists to make impact, to defy convention, and to ignite this generation. And this is what is going down this summer–an unforgettable weekend full of fun and all things rock. 3 days. 2 stages. Over 55 bands. It’s gonna be wild. We want to shout out the hardworking people who helped curate this incredible experience and lent their skills as we build this empire. We are grateful for the agents and management teams for their willingness to partner with us for this amazing weekend! TKO, Sound Talent Group, AGI, UTA, William Morris, Forthright Booking, Don’t Blink Management Group, Restless Mind Booking, FM Management, Powerline Management, Sequel Music Group, Dynamic Talent International. We also want to acknowledge the hard work by Allyson Song River Jaynes of CowGirlZen Entertainment PR, who helped us get the word out, and our main man Jimmy Wooten from The World Is Yours, for his tireless efforts at helping us build one of the most epic lineups New England has seen in years. Lastly, to all our Capulet community – attendees, podcasters, radio personalities, influencers, all of you who believe along with us that music can change lives, that an experience can build community, and that united, we are stronger. We’re ready to take the Northeast by storm. Are you? We’ll see you at the Thompson Speedway this June!” – Estevan Vega, founder of Capulet Fest and Capulet Entertainment

Mark your calendars. Dig through your over crowded dresser drawer for that long-lost band tee that still somehow fits in spite of the thousand and one washes. Fasten your studded emo belt. Find your scribbled-on Converses. Bleach your mohawk, and get ready for the highly anticipated return of Capulet Fest.

Home to dozens of race events a year, the nationally recognized Thompson Speedway remains an ideal spot for a unique festival like this, positioned dead center in the middle of every major New England metropolis. Whether festival attendees live near Boston, Worcester, Hartford, Providence, or Manchester, driving to the site is a breeze. 

But what makes Capulet Fest unique? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right? We think not. Amidst a sea of corporate festivals spanning the country, Capulet Fest eclipses the others by being one of the few independently run festivals on the East Coast. In year one, we hosted bands like D.R.U.G.S., I Set My Friends On Fire, Spirit Breaker, and The Letter Black. Year two saw us explode beyond any preconceived notions of what a fest in its second year could be with the likes of All That Remains, Memphis May Fire, Anberlin, Norma Jean, Crown the Empire, and Woe, is Me, to name a few. Unique vendors, food trucks, and beer tents populated the grounds. Two electrifying stages enchanted the hyped crowds, and a dazzling fireworks display lit up the evening sky. Magic and music coalesced. 

Capulet Fest exists to give modern rock fans what they want. In the last decade, Capulet Entertainment has thrown a number of memorable shows, but none as impactful upon the scene as Capulet Fest. Our desire is to unite under the banner of rock for one unforgettable weekend of excitement, head-banging, bomb food, and pandemonium in its purest form. 2024 will never be the same. Come rock with the best this June!

More from Capulet Fest:
Capulet Entertainment is an independent promotion company formed in 2012 by author and lifelong music aficionado Estevan Vega. Since its inception a decade ago, Capulet ENT has curated numerous events in the New England area, booking high-profile talent in the alternative rock and metal scene, some of whom include: Alesana, A Skylit Drive, PVRIS, My Ticket Home, Spoken, Kingsmen, D.R.U.G.S, Glasslands, Rivals, Spirit Breaker, Project 86, Convictions, Prison, and many more. Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire have all been ground zero, with fans and friends alike helping to simultaneously cultivate the musical landscape and evolve the brand across New England, proving that the time was right to establish a bona fide, nationally-appealing rock festival. 

In 2021, Capulet Fest was born in Providence, RI. Off the heels of a dynamic and unifying first-year festival and the epic Back to School Bash (featuring Alesana and A Skylit Drive), Capulet ENT is set to take the northeast by storm with the third annual Capulet Fest 2024 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson, Connecticut.
