For Dome Group’s first year doing a major festival, performance wise I was happy. Besides staggering the performance times, I thought the variety of lineup was nicely done. They had a healthy mix of NC musicians, helping keep it true to the festival’s roots but I enjoyed the heftier hip hop additions.

I would like to see a bit more Jazz artists in keeping with AOC heritage but I think this was a good first effort for everyone involved. Now that year 5.1 is done, I can’t wait to see what they will make happen next year. Sulaiman and Lesleigh Mausi definitely brought a new feel to the local festival, let’s see what great things happen for Art of Cool in 2019.
