Peace Through Music Festival Returns for 2012

This was a very fun and affordable festival last year, and it's great to see it return for 2012, and it is set for a week before All Good. What a great way to still be able to get out for a nice weekend without being too hard on the wallet.

From their initial announcement:

We are proud to present the Peace Through Music Festival!!!
This year, Peace Fest is on July 13-14, the weekend right before All Good! Tickets are cheap so everyone can still afford to make the trip here and anywhere else you want to go this summer, and still get some great home grown music!

Pre-sale tickets will be on sale in Spring, estimated prices are $25 pre-sale, $35 Friday at the gate, and $25 Saturday at the gate. Subject to change. You will be able to find pre-sale tickets from many of the bands playing Peace Fest or from some of our good friends street teaming for us! Tickets will also be available online & at the Zane Shawnee Caverns.

Invite your friends! If you're not checking out our awesome music that we have in store for you, you might find yourself taking a stroll through the woods, taking a tour of the caverns, exploring old structures on the land, maybe fishing, swimming, or just laying back and relaxing under the sun! That's what this weekend is all about!!!

Come Together Arts & Music Fest - 4/20 - 4/22 2012

This is reallly shaping up to be not only one of the greatest early season festivals in the region, but also one of the best values out there. With enough diversity to please just about anyone, and the great vibes from the people that are putting this festival on, this will be an event that you do NOT want to miss!

The event will be held at the water bowl in Muncie, Indiana on the weekend of April 20th, and ticket prices are an INCREDIBLE $35 for presale and $45 at the gate. There are so many acts on this bill that I'd rather you just click on the facebook link after the jump and read about it there.

Talent from all over the midwest will be coming together (no pun intended) to give you a very memorable weekend. Genres ranging from Jam, Frunk, Bluegrass, Alternative, Acoustic, Dance,

also plenty of electronic music from all genres ranging from dubstep, drum n bass, electro, breaks, trance, house, techno, hard style and jungle.

I reccomend visiting the Facebook event page and checking out more of the details. This is an absolute no brainer!

FREE Glostik Willy Show This Friday!

The trio from Indiana will be hosting a free show this Friday 3/2/2012 at One Eyed Jacks in Fairborn Ohio. This is an 18+ show with valid ID. Rumor has it that a certain percussionist that has played with a couple other bands from the area will be sitting in.  You can't beat free! Be sure to go check these guys out and make the best out of what's left of this Ohio "Winter".

Show is from 10:00pm until 2:00am

Spring Hookah in the Hills 2012!

One of the first regional festivals of the year will once again be the mainstay that is Spring Hookah in the Hills. It will go from March 29th through April 1st, 2012. Ekoostik Hookah will of course be headlining the event alongside The Werks. John mullins will be there as will you're favorite trash grass band, the boys from Rumpke Mountain. Plenty of other great talent will keep this party going all weekend. Most of the remaining lineup is listed in the picture.  Just be sure to bring lots of warm clothes and it would probably be a good idea to be ready for the rain and some mud. (If you were there last year, you already will come prepared)

Presale tickets are available for 60 dollars or 45 dollars depending on whether you arrive Thursday or Friday. Prices go up 15 dollars if you purchase at the gate.  This festival is guaranteed to be a good time and a great kickoff for most people to the beginning of the season.

Location: Stewart, OH 45778. Corner of Winners Lane & Co Rd 48/New England Rd.

Hope to see you there!
