Xfest started in 2008 with Walter Wright and 119 Gallery in Lowell Mass. The idea was to pair local and visiting movement, video and sound artists in small ensembles for two nights of improvisational performances. Along with these public performances held at the gallery, the weekend long festival hosts public workshops hosted by artists as well as a day dedicated to showcasing local and visiting bands and artist curated projects.
In addition to 119 Gallery Xfest has been hosted at Uncharted Gallery in Lowell Ma., LTC in Lowell Ma., Gateway City Arts in Holyoke Ma., Block City Arts in Greenfield Ma., Easthampton City Arts in Easthampton Ma. and Holyoke City Hall in Holyoke Ma.
