This year, OPUS pushed the boundaries of what an art and music festival could be and created a sensory playground for all ages. Artists like Oneohtrix Point Never and Sudan Archives awed on the Chrsyalis stage. Matthew Schreiber, Patrick Higgins and Sophia Brous debuted new works of art, transforming the forest and inviting attendees to move through and within, while becoming a part of the artwork and music. The Lawn Stage vibrated with world-class DJ’s like Quantic and Pantha Du Prince, electrifying crowds with an all-night dance party.
With multiple stages and over 25 participating artists, Merriweather Post Pavilion and Symphony Woods felt both expansive and intimate as attendees found moments between performances to create their own journeys. Kids laughed as they skipped amongst the light globes, people danced and swayed to music echoing through the air and smiles lit the faces of people trying new cuisines for the first time.
What is OPUS? It’s the space to explore and engage with art, music, tech, food and more from across the world for one night only… and we can’t wait for what next year brings.
