With transitions taking place at Arts Collinwood, Beachland Ballroom owner Cindy Barber and her staff took on the booking for the Waterloo Arts Fest from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday. She’s assembled one of the most diverse festival lineups this summer ranging from Jah Messengers (reggae) to Bob Kravos & the Boys in the Band (polka) to Instruments of Praise (gospel) to singer-songwriters like Ashley Brooke Toussant and Corissa Bragg to all forms of rock — jam, Americana, indie, goth-influenced, country-rock, classic-style. The five stages include a main stage at East 156th and Waterloo, an acoustic solo stage, and a stage in the Zaller Building sculpture garden at East 160th and Waterloo. There’ll also be a DJ stage at Blue Arrow Books & Records, and live music and DJs in the Beachland Tavern.
