Hemming Plaza

Easily the most colorful One Spark entry, Elestial Sound’s mobile stage is located on the outskirts of Hemming Plaza. A structure completely covered in various knit afghans, the stage has proven a main attraction by featuring musical acts like The Dewars, Lady Dug and Levek.

“We had no idea what we were getting into,” admits Davis Hart, co-founder of Elestial Sound, a Gainesville-based record label focused on creativity and sustainability. “We didn’t start preparing for this until two weeks ago.”

The record label's mission is to garner support to purchase and renovate new headquarters to be located in Gainesville. The company’s colorful afghan stage is an extension of the independent record label and has previously traveled to events like SXSW.
