Though bands and musicians are often the primary draw for most music festivals, the food options are arguably just as important.

The Sound On Sound music festival in Bridgeport, which announced its set times on Thursday, has also revealed the food lineup for its inaugural edition. The Sound On Sound Food Program presented by CTVISIT is highlighting local cuisine from all over the state, as well as the country.

Notable local eateries include the Little Pub restaurant chain, the Tasty Yolk, Hoodoo Brown BBQ, Thai Jasmine and Connecticut donut chain, Donut Crazy. Other eateries present at the festival represent states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and even Florida.

“We are excited to celebrate all that is great in Connecticut and thrilled so many local purveyors are part of Sound On Sound. It is especially gratifying that many of the top choices of our followers on our social media are participating in our inaugural festival,” said Tom Russell of Founders Entertainment in a press release. “We are particularly happy to welcome the local establishments to the tried and true festival food offerings at Sound on Sound.”

Earlier this month, the festival announced that Stratford's own Two Roads Brewing would be crafting a one-off collaborative beer for the festival called "Citrus Crush." The beer is a citrus wheat ale brewed with orange peels, lemongrass and coriander. 

The inaugural festival will take place in Bridgeport's Seaside Park on Sept. 24 and 25. Weekend passes are still available.
