Strange Fruit Festival

Strange Fruit is a music festival that explores the thoughts and emotions of local musicians regarding the current climate of racial relations both in Milwaukee and the country as a whole.

The Festival is organized and curated by James Anderson, Founder of VoodooHoney Records. 

VoodooHoney Records is a central hub serving Milwaukee’s ongoing Renaissance of arts and creativity-driven industries.
