Take a look back at photos and videos from the festival this past July and celebrate all over again.

Merge 25 Festival: now with day parties!

As we all prep for the Merge 25 Festival on July 23–26, there are still plenty of truly awesome surprises to share in the coming month!

Let’s begin with two day parties occurring on Thursday and Friday at Orange County Social Club. Both are free and open to the public (until we’re at capacity), and both will have beverages on-site for purchase. Think of these events as tasty appetizers before each evening’s six-course meal inside Cat’s Cradle:
Thursday, July 24, 4–6pm
Orange County Social Club, Carrboro, NC
(FREE & open to public)
Amor de Días
Hiss Golden Messenger
Friday, July 25, 4–6pm 
Orange County Social Club, Carrboro, NC
(FREE & open to public)
Radar Brothers
Saint Rich
Thursday and Friday’s shows inside Cat’s Cradle are sold out, but there are a few tickets still available for Wednesday’s show at Baldwin Auditorium in Durham and Saturday’s big outdoor blowout in Carrboro, the latter hosted by Margaret Cho!

That’s all for now, but we have a few other tricks up our sleeves. Come see these great Merge artists in North Carolina this summer and celebrate 25 years with us!
