Festy from the Futon: An Introduction
Welcome to our new show, Festy from the Futon!
Festy from the Futon is meant to inform and entertain. We wanted a way to stay connected and engaged with all of you during our Coronavirus quarantine, but hopefully we will continue this project beyond the current state of affairs.
In each episode, we will bring you music festival news, interviews with artists and other music industry personalities, segments from the ‘Festy Kitchen’, and any other goofy fun we come up with!
We hope you’ll join us on this adventure!

Support Festy GoNuts!
Desperate times, right?
Seriously, though, many of you may not know about the ‘behind the scenes’ of Festy GoNuts.
Festy GoNuts is run entirely by Jason and Kelly Law, and is very much a labor of love. Sure, we get to see amazing music and go to wonderful festivals, but it doesn’t exactly pay the bills.
For our ‘day jobs’, we run a marketing company, GoNuts Marketing. Many of our clients are in the hospitality or entertainment industries – including several restaurants and musicians.
Needless to say, work is in short supply at the moment. (Need marketing assistance? Let us know!)
We, along with everyone else, are reaching out to our community for support.
We would love to continue to bring the music coverage and news that the Festy GoNuts audience has come to expect.
We hope that in sharing stories, news and events, we are making a positive impact on the music community, and helping others in need.
By supporting Festy GoNuts, you are, in effect, supporting the artists and festivals that we all love so dearly!
Thank you for supporting Festy GoNuts!
