We are just over 2 weeks away from the inaugural Black Dirt Music Festival and we couldn't be any more excited! Blown away by all of the sponsors getting behind this epic event. From the beginning when we first starting talking about putting this together, we wanted it to be a point of pride for this community. Something folks could take ownership of and look forward to every summer. So far, so good!

Here's the skinny, if artists are influenced by their surroundings, and our entire festival line up comes from Bloomington, IL, I think it's safe to say that YOU are a part of this music AND this FESTIVAL. This is our moment. We've always wanted our very own festival here in the heart of the heartland, and now we've got it.

So I call on you to take ownership of this MUSIC & FESTIVAL. Rally around it. Tell your friends. Tell your friends friends. Hell, host relatives from outta town. Make it a thing. Let's show people how we do it here in Bloomington, IL.

This is the first Black Dirt Music Festival, let's kick it off with a bang!

Rock & Roll.
