This Nashville-based boutique festival is one of the most exciting events of the year, throughout the United States, in my humble opinion. The heart and passion that goes into curating this event is unmatched, from the the careful consideration of each vendor, crafting a sacred and eco-conscious foundation, a hand-picked lineup of exemplary artists, to all the beautiful people who show up and boldly share themselves through fashionable self-expression. Though it wasn’t possible to pull out all the big tricks for this third installment of Deep Tropics, due to various covid-related things, they did a phenomenal job regenerating the energy that makes this production so special while also innovating new ways to utilize their resources and installations.
Get to know ESCPE! He is a local music producer to Nashville, creating organic bass sounds influenced by hip-hop beats and nature. After headlining the side stage for Deep Tropics Music, Art & Style Festival in 2019, ESCPE got to open the main stage, Meru Amphitheater, for this year’s production. We sat down with him right after he played to talk about his set and plans for the weekend!
Meet $avvy, a hip-hop artist who made his way to Nashville who years ago. He played his first festival ever on stage at Deep Tropics this summer. His genuine nature and eclectic style shone through bright that weekend, both on stage during his set and out in the crowd while he danced supporting other acts. Get to know him a bit in this interview!
As to be expected, we had an absolute blast at Deep Tropics. Getting to indulge in a music festival that we know is giving back to the earth on so many levels, is a bliss difficult to explain! You’ll have to find out for yourself next time around. We loved reconnecting with this lively music city and getting to mingle with its creative inhabitants. Deep Tropics truly becomes a place so full of love, authentic self-expression, and super fun and funky beats! In addition to ESCPE and $avvy, many other wildly talented others shared the stage: Sango, Clozee, Daily Bread, Charlesthefirst, Claude von Stroke, to name a few.
