It takes a lot of people to put on a festival the size and complexity of Starbelly Jam. Some have been working on it for weeks, some for months or all year, and many, many help out for a few hours before, during and after the event. We’d like to give special acknowledgment to the key people who have been so vital to the success of Starbelly.
