The Town of Shelton, Connecticut, will put on a new music and arts festival this summer.

Derek Signore, a co-promoter of the Riverfront Music Festival, says it’s a different concept from the Gathering of the Vibes concert in Bridgeport, which was a mainstay in the area for twenty years before shutting down in 2015.

“It would be great if we can capture some of what made that so great. I helped work that festival and I was there as an attendee so I saw it from both sides.”

He says the festival will blend different musical styles and genres.
