The city of Berkeley is no stranger to the alternative and experimental. This attitude lives on as UC Berkeley’s Greek Theatre gears up to host Our Music Festival, the first music fest “powered by a cryptocurrency.”
The heady California city of Berkeley is historically associated with experimental and countercultural values. Berkeley will continue this tradition by hosting the world’s first crypto-powered music festival on Saturday, October 20th. The chosen venue is the legendary Greek Theatre at the University of California, Berkeley. Officially named the Hearst Greek Theatre, the 8,500 capacity venue was opened in 1903 after being built with funds from newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst.
