Annual Speedbump Fest to Take Place Next Month at the Outpost in Kent

Posted By on Mon, Sep 17, 2018 at 5:42 PM

Jaclyn Wright, the organizer of the annual Speedbump Fest, a benefit that began as a memorial concert to friend Garrett Janos, a suicide victim, has said she would like to think of Speedbump Fest as “aimed at not only celebrating his life but also building trust and an openness to our community.”

For the third annual rendition of the festival, which will again serve as a benefit for mental health, Wright has recruited the underground bands Mockingbird, Face Value, Fringe Candidate, the Repos, Nullum and Slut Bomb to perform.

“Over the years, Speedbump Fest has evolved from not just a memorial but to also raise awareness for mental health," she says in an email announcing this year’s concert. "This year, we're having bands, food, mental health information, our awesome raffle, and the ‘Rage Cage,’ a fun way to blow off some steam by breaking things!”

The event takes place at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Outpost in Kent.
