Rapid City Hosts Inaugural Four Winds Music and Art Festival to Showcase Local Talent

by Barbara

Mitchell Stafford, recognizing the challenges faced by aspiring musicians in smaller, isolated cities like Rapid City, spearheaded the debut of the Four Winds Music and Art Festival. The event aimed to elevate burgeoning bands and artists from the Black Hills to new heights.

“Our goal with bringing Four Winds here is to spotlight the rich local talent of the Black Hills, which often goes overlooked,” explained Stafford.

Originating in other parts of the Midwest, including Sioux Falls, Sioux City, and Omaha, the festival made its Rapid City premiere at Aby’s over the weekend. The two-day event featured an impressive lineup of 40 acts across three stages.

Zachary Conger, who plays drums for two bands featured in the festival, emphasized the supportive community spirit that has emerged within the local music scene.

“The camaraderie and mutual support among artists have been incredibly beneficial,” said Conger. “Our scene has been flourishing, with everyone becoming closer-knit and collaborating more.”

The inaugural Four Winds Music and Art Festival not only provided a platform for local talent but also fostered a sense of unity and growth within Rapid City’s artistic community.
