An outdoor music festival was held in Rosebud on Sunday, Sept. 3. It was the 12th year for the 15 Minutes of Fame festival.

This was Director Lauren Hamm's first year putting on the show.

"It's so great. We have vendors coming out, we have visual artists, and of course musical artists who come and we have music all day. From 12 p.m. it begins, and we run until about 10," explained Hamm.

Although Hamm changed a few things this year, she said that she kept a lot of what worked in previous years.

"We had an online application process so artists generally come to us and apply and, I just listen. We like to promote a lot of local artists, so I would say 40 to 50 per cent of the artists are local, or through the school."

When selecting artists, Hamm said a wide variety of musical genres was important, but that she tried to maintain consistency throughout the day.

"We have a big brass band coming out and then we also have singer/songwriters and folk artists and then we have folk rock bands. We have a band called The Frontiers coming out from Calgary, they're a great group of folk rock players. They play originals and some really awesome covers. We have some singer/songwriters from the area, from Rosebud," said Hamm.

In addition to the musical performances, there were visual artists doing live paintings, food vendors and a beer garden. Between 400 and 500 people were expected to attend yesterday's event.
