Outside the Box is returning to Boston this summer with music, performing arts and a new component highlighting technology.
In addition to its 100-strong roster of performers, the free five-day festival is adding new programming called “OTB Interactive” to celebrate the city’s innovation community, organizers said Monday.
The festival this year will include an “Innovation Village” on Boston Common, along with networking events, off-site speakers and the “OTB Interactive Awards.” The schedule of events hasn’t been announced yet.
“It’s the melding of art, culture and innovation that makes our city so exceptional,” Susan Darian, Outside the Box’s executive director, said at a news conference.
It’s scheduled to run July 13-17. Find more info on the OTB website.
Mayor Marty Walsh offered his support for the festival’s new tech focus Monday morning, saying it would “showcase our thriving startup scene here in the city, providing another resource for entrepreneurs as America’s most innovative city.”
