Harvest of Hope Festival 2009 | St. Johns County Fairgrounds; St. Augustine, FL

by LUKAS SUVEG · March 13, 2009

The first annual Harvest of Hope Festival was sponsored by Gainesville's No Idea Records, a label that Against Me!, Less Than Jake, and This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb have all called home at some point. While the talent buyer wisely booked a good number of very reputable indie-rock acts, the organization and set times were detrimental to the festival as a whole. Rather than alternating pop punk with hip-hop or “indie rock,” the lineup was, for the most part, divided up into neat chunks of the same genre, band after band. Still, the festival's goal of “providing financial, educational, and service oriented aid to migrant farm workers all over the country” seemed much closer to accomplishment with the high turnout.

----

Saturday

I showed up at about 1 PM, trying to orient myself to the festival grounds before Deerhunter's set at 2. While they sound-checked, Bradford Cox jokingly remarked that few in the audience (if any) had even listened to their music or knew who they were. This was met with objections from half of the crowd, prompting an apology from Cox. Most of the material played was from Microcastle, but they also included a few tracks from CryptogramsFluorescent Gray, and even an unreleased (and quite good) new song. While every member was in top form, I couldn't help but notice how disinterested and tired they all looked. Their set just one night before (in Florida State University's Club Downunder) was breathtaking, due in no small part to the healthy rapport established before their set. The band has noted their preference of playing in a club over a festival performance, and the sentiment showed. 

Later in the day came an acoustic set from John Vanderslice, who treated the crowd to material from all across his discography, songs from the upcoming Romanian Names, and a Mountain Goats cover. The atmosphere was just right, and he was clearly in his element as the sun set on his native Florida. Although his densely arranged songs sounded stark and unfamiliar when performed unaccompanied, it was a solid and enthusiastic set no less. 

The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle took the stage quickly after Vanderslice left, only to encounter technical difficulties. After confusedly searching for a minute, he realized that his guitar simply wasn't plugged in. Vanderslice, who tuned Darnielle's guitar prior to the performance, received the blame of the crowd until Darnielle hushed everybody. The acoustic set was more aligned to what we were all expecting, and though the audience was rather small, everyone seemed satisfied, especially with the impassioned performance of “This Year.” 

Stage two, Saturday's punk-leaning stage, was by far the day's most popular. The diminutive attendance at stage one can be attributed to the back-to-back lineup of mainstays The Bouncing Souls, Bad Brains, Against Me!, and Propoghandi. Against Me! saw the highest attendance of any show that day (and possibly the whole weekend). The cloud of cigarette smoke and dirt stirred up from the moshing mass of packed bodies hung heavily above the crowd as the Gainesville favorites tore through a set of their incendiary political punk. 

----

Sunday

As I walked through the gates, the dirty riffs and wailing vocals of Israel's Monotonix met my ears. The debris-littered ground around the stage was torn up with a crowd of happy kids moshing around the band; Monotonix refused to play on stage, opting instead to play on the “floor.” Ami Shalev was as wild as ever, scaling the stage's huge steel beams and leaping into the crowd from the massive speaker stacks. He ended the set while held aloft by the crowd, pounding on cymbals and the snare drum. 

Canadian quartet Holy Fuck was up next and delivered an intense, unbelievably solid set of favorites, including “The Pulse” and “Lovely Allen.” I'd never seen them before and was pleasantly surprised. Dirt-covered hippies danced, and hipsters nodded appreciatively. The rhythm section provided a stable, clean foundation with subtle variations, while Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh manipulated fractured electronics and samples through a vast array of effects pedals. Each member was in perfect sync with the other, and I was reminded just how tight non-quantized or sequenced electronic music could be. 

I headed over to stage one to check out Murs' set; to my surprise, Jacksonville, Florida's Whole Wheat Bread, a self-described crunk-rock band, accompanied the rapper. Together, they called themselves The Invincibles, and their rap-rock hybrid schtick was absolutely terrible. Limp Bizkit brought enough shame to Jacksonville with their “rap-core” in the late '90s, and The Invincibles did nothing to reconcile the city with its... actually, Jacksonville never really had a sterling reputation as a breeding ground for great music. Anyway, WWB left the stage after an all-too-long set, and Murs performed fan favorites from Murs 3:16, a far more enjoyable experience. 

KRS-One was by far the most exciting rapper to perform all weekend, delivering classics and freestyles in equal measure. The Brooklyn emcee was all over the stage, rousing the crowd to unprecedented levels of excitement, and even threw several boxes of his CDs to them. About halfway through his set, he stopped for a “public service announcement,” in which he began to wax metaphysical. “You know what I'll be doin' tonight around midnight? I'll be sittin' in my hotel room, on the edge of my bed, visualizing myself at age 17, sleeping on a park bench in NYC. The me I'll be visualizing will be imagining me, here, on this stage -- a success. It'll be like there are two of me. Make good decisions while you're young.” After the speech, he got back to rhyming. After such an impressive set from KRS-One, GZA's performance was extremely disappointing. The Wu-Tang member seemed bored, moving slowly back and forth across the stage. 

After a few songs, I left and got ready to take pictures of The National, the band I'd been waiting for all weekend. They began with the chiming guitars of “Start a War” and moved through an unfortunately short set, consisting mostly of songs from Alligatorand their breakthrough, Boxer. “Secret Meeting,” “Slow Show,” “Guest Room,” “Baby, We'll Be Fine,” and of course “Fake Empire” were all performed. Matt Berninger noted that the band would perform a new song, but warned that recent attempts at their new material live ended up as train wrecks. “This one's called ‘car-wreck,'” he joked, before launching into a somber ballad that sounded similar to many of Boxer's tracks. After only an hour, the band closed with the cathartic “Mr. November,” and I went home satisfied. 

While some monotonous lineup choices plagued the weekend, those sort of issues can be expected from a nascent festival. Catering to such a polarized crowd is difficult, but the Harvest of Hope festival planners did a pretty good job in appealing to diverse tastes.

 

 




Welcome to the second annual Harvest of Hope Fest

 



Harvest of Hope Festival 2010 - The Mountain Goats: The Recognition Scene
Performing "The Recognition Scene" at the 2nd Annual Harvest of Hope Festival in St. Augustine, Fl at the St. Johns County Fairground. This was a three-day event raising money and awareness for migrant farm workers.

MISSION

Our three day multiple stage alternative music festival, March 12-14th, 2010, was created to help benefit and raise awareness for the Harvest of Hope Foundaiton, a nonprofit charity organization that provides educational grants, scholarships, emergency financial assistance, and service oriented aid to migrant farmworkers and seasonal farmworkers all accross the United States. The primary mission of our event is to help generate a higher level of social conscious regarding the multifaceted life and hardships of underpaid and overworked seasonal farmworkers, migrant farmworker and undocumented farmworkers. Furthermore, our event emphasizes not only on migrant farmworkers but we also put focus on being family friendly (All Ages Event!) as well as being "Green" environmentally conscious. In addition, we are proud to boast that our musical line up will showcase not only a large group of musicians who are donating their time and performances to the cause, but will also showcase a variety of performance artist, indie arts & crafts, indie filmmakers, progressive musicians from around the globe, non-profits businesses, local area businesses, and progressive organizations.

Most importantly, the festival will be focused on raising funds for the Harvest of Hope Foundation and to create a greater social awareness about our countries' community of migrant farmworkers who are more commonly referred to as the people who pick the food we eat daily.

While on-site you'll find incredible music on 3 daytime stages, eclectic culture, quality art, and crafts, delicious food and drinks, great microbrews, ice, an ATM machine, a General Store, and more. St. Augustine, Florida is a small town with a great natural food co-op, and outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming.

Please remember that you are a guest of the town and represent the festival to the community at large. We ask that you are good neighbors both inside the festival grounds and in St. Augustine and St. Johns County.

Thank you for your cooperation and support, and for being an integral part of our wonderful community. Please visit the links at the top of the page to help make your arrival and stay at the festival as easy and comfortable as possible.

Right in time for spring break, the 2010 Harvest of Hope Fest, March 12th – 14th, is located on the St. Johns County Fairgrounds in St. Augustine, FL. In addition to a great music lineup the festival offers expanded camping options, carnival rides, games and more!

2010 Harvest of Hop[e Fest Featured Artist

 

Billy Bragg was described by The Times newspaper as a 'national treasure'. In the two and a half decades of his career Bragg has certainly made an indelible mark on the conscience of British music, becoming perhaps the most stalwart guardian of the radical dissenting tradition that stretches back over centuries of the country's political, cultural and social history.

 

The Mountain Goats began life in a Norwalk employee-housing studio apartment that had awesome deco tiling on the bathroom floor but little more to recommend the place as a living space. Still, you take what you can get, and it was ridiculously cheap. In this room, equipped with a dual-cassette recorder, John D. started setting some of his poetry to music, using a guitar he'd gotten for a few bucks at a nearby strip mall music store. His idea at the time was that eventually his day job would be "poet." Young men have all kinds of crazy ideas about what they're going to end up doing for a living.

 


Anti-Flag is a punk band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, formed in 1988. Despite relatively modest beginnings and a back catalog of independent labels, the band has risen to steady popularity, having performed tours on four continents and signed to a major label. The current lineup includes Justin Sane (vocals/guitar), Chris #2 (vocals/bass), Chris Head (guitar), and Pat Thetic (drums). Past members include Lucy Fester, Andy Flag, and Jamie Cock.

 

How Dare You is a melodic punk rock band from Florida that got their start in 2007. Without reading much about the band, I had an idea they were from Florida because of their sound. The band sounds a little bit like Hot Water Music and Against Me! If you like those bands, you'll like How Dare You! 

 



 

About the Harvest of Hope Foundation

Located in Gainesville, Florida, The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a unique non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that has been providing migrant farmworkers and their families with emergency relief and financial assistance for over 15 years.

As of January 20, 2010 the Harvest of Hope Foundation has distributed over $788,000 to migrant farmworkers, seasonal farmworkers and their families for severe or life treating situations. The Foundation's services include, but are not limited to emergency: healthcare assistance, housing and transportation assistance, educational grants and scholarships, monthly expenses, replacement clothing, and financial aid to migrant farmworkers and seasonal farmworkers throughout the United States.

The Harvest of Hope Foundation firmly believe that factors such as limited cultural capital, lack of political power, poverty, and frequent mobility operate as barriers that continuously prevent migrant farmworkers and seasonal farmworkers from obtaining legitimate legal rights, education, healthcare and social services. Therefore, it is the Harvest of Hope Foundation's intention to be a proactive voice and leader in providing emergency services to migrant farmworkers and their families.

Here are some other important things to remember about seasonal farmworkers and migrant farmworkers:

  • Seasonal and Migrant Farmworker wages are in general quite low, sometimes lower than the federally required minimum wage. The average annual salary for a migrantfamily averages $7,000 - $12,000 a year making them the poorest of the working poor.
  • The three largest "home base" states where migrant families reside before moving are California, Texas and Florida. Migrant workers will then travel from state to state in search of seasonal or temporary agricultural work. They struggle to help their children to maintain their education because of frequent mobility.
  • Many migrant children work in the fields to help their families and they are an unseen child labor force.
  • Securing adequate temporary housing is very difficult. If the can find housing, the conditions are often quite bad. Migrant families sleep in their vehicles when there is no housing. Most growers will not or cannot afford to provide housing.
  • The majority of migrant workers are provided no health insurance and there is a lack of access to health services as they move.
  • Pesticide usage in the fields and poor sanitation can adversely affect the health of migrant farmworkers.
  • The majority of migrant workers and their families are Hispanic. However, other ethnicities are represented in the fields such as Haitians and African-Americans.
  • Many migrant workers were born in the United States and are citizens. Other immigrant farmworkers have permission from the US government to work.  And yes, some migrant farmworkers are undocumented but their labor in the fields is still needed.
  • Many migrant farmworkers who are undocumented pay taxes.  Ironically, while the Internal Revenue Service accepts their taxes they are at risk for being deported by the Department of Homeland Security due to their status.
  • Some farm owners treat their migrant workers well and some treat them harshly.

In an effort to help our hard-working yet needy migrant farmworkers and their families, the Harvest of Hope Fest, scheduled for March 12-14th at the Saint Johns County Fairgrounds in St. Augustine, Florida will bring together over 100 progressive and talented bands playing to raise funds for migrant farmworkers and the Harvest of Hope Foundation.

Thanks to an inheritance from my grandmother, Dr. Helen Zand, I established Harvest of Hope in 1997 to provide emergency and educational financial support to migrant farmworkers and their families. To help relieve some of the conditions mentioned above, the Foundation has distributed more than $787,000 for car repairs due to breakdowns while traveling, gas, tires, bus tickets, housing, rent, utility payments, medical services and medications, food, clothing, funeral expenses and scholarships to children of migrant farmworkers attending college. The Foundation has strict but fair procedures for the distribution of funds. We believe that while migrant farmworkers earn our support, our funds are used to lend a hand, and not as a hand-out. More information on the Harvest of Hope Foundation can be found at www.harvestofhope.net.

Thank you for your time and interest.

Sincerely,

Philip Kellerman, President
