Featuring a vanguard, genre-spanning musical lineup, guest lecturers and producer workshops, vintage clothing and vinyl record fairs, free regional liquor tastings, specialized menus from acclaimed local restaurants, and a series of wild experimental afterparties amid Arizona’s majestic desert daybreaks, HOCO Fest 2017 strives to celebrate everything that makes the culture of the Borderlands so important.
