Club Passim’s twice-yearly campfire. Festival – that’s how it’s punctuated – returns Friday through Monday for the Labor Day Weekend, with more than 50 artists performing live and remotely.

The lineup for the festival’s 23rd year is loaded with familiar acts such as Sol y Canto and Dinty Child, as well as rising stars such as Gabriella Simpkins, alternating between live performances in the Harvard Square club and video performances recorded at artists’ homes or studios. The entire festival will be streamed on Passim’s Facebook page and at

Those attending live will have to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination each time they enter the club, and Passim recommends that all non-performers wear masks indoors unless they are actively eating or drinking. Club Passim is at 47 Palmer St., Harvard Square.

Campfire. runs from 4:30 to 11 p.m. nightly; the full lineup can be found here. Tickets are $25 for the weekend, $10 by the day for club tickets and $10 for streaming access at
