Giant heads, electronic music and DIY fun: The Anomolia Festival

The Anomalia Festival, which brings a diverse crowd of bands, artists and avant-garde art exhibits to the Delaware County town of Andes on Saturday, July 30, is a somewhat anarchic DIY event.

Back in 2009, when it was founded, it had a much more risqué name: Cockstock. 

“It was a tongue-in-cheek pun about badminton,” said Alex Gohorel, the festival’s founder.

Gohorel lives in New York City, but his mother, Anne Gohorel, runs Bread Fellows, a bakery, on the family property near the border of Andes and Bovina on Route 28.

That’s where the festival, which Gohorel expects to draw over 100 people, happens today starting at noon.

Gohorel books the event himself. He’s been doing that kind of thing since high school, when he put on DIY punk shows and raves.  Read more
