If you're feeling bummed that you didn't get into the first annual Epic Fest -- a celebration of the record label on Los Angeles' Sony Pictures Lot that featured sets by Ozzy Osbourne, Future and more -- don't be. Epic Records president Sylvia Rhone has good news for you.
"This is a run through. We're trademarking it now; there's a future for Epic Fest," Rhone tells Billboard. "It's still a work in progress, but we feel so good about the way this was organized and the response we're getting from the community. I think the demand will be great for a festival like this."
The three hour-plus show on Saturday afternoon (Aug. 29), which was a showcase for the diversity of the roster, featured some memorable sets and news, like the debut of Big Gram, a collaboration between Outkast's Big Boi and Phantogram. After the second song in their three-song set, Big Boi announced they would have a Big Gram album coming soon.
