Debacle Fest welcomes a new Director

Hey folks, 

Hallie Sloan, our new Festival Director

Hallie Sloan, our new Festival Director

Wanted to announce some big changes for the festival. The wonderful Rachel LeBlanc is stepping down as Director of the festival, she will be focusing on some personal projects and one-off events under the Debacle Records Presents moniker. I am extremely excited to announce that Hallie Sloan has stepped up to the plate as our new Festival Director!

Dave Segal at the Stranger has an article about this and other changes at Debacle Records.

Debacle Fest for years has been a beacon of live experimental music performance, expertly curated on a small budget by Melancon and LeBlanc. Hallie Sloan steps into the position of Director with heavy expectations. Currently an Associate Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork, she’s fresh off a brief stint with dark-electronic-music crew False Prophet. Previously she’s worked at Bellingham branch of Everyday Music and served as Program Director at KUGS 89.3 FM at Western Washington University, where she co-hosted an all-vinyl post-punk/coldwave show.

We are beyond excited to have Hallie come on board and can't thank Rachel enough for all she has done for the Festival and Debacle Records as a whole.
