The art festival is free to the public starting at 10am and lasting until 4pm. The evening music event will begin at 5pm and last until 11pm and will provide six hours of music from six Midwest Indie Bands acts for $30 (pre-sale price).

Headlining the music fest will be Peter Wolf Crier a critically acclaimed band from the Minneapolis area.  This will be their first live event in four years. Joining Peter Wolf Crier will be two bands from Kansas City, The PedalJets and Hi-Lux.  The PedalJets are a veteran group that is a long time powerhouse band who have opened for major acts.  Hi-Lux is a Funk/Reggae Indie sound and is considered an emerging band on the Kansas City music scene.  From Chicago we will have Ludlow, Nathan Graham and Mitch Meade. Ludlow is a six-piece Indie band with an array of instruments and layers of vocal harmonies to accomplish a big melodic sound that is full of depth. Nathan Graham is an Indie Soul artist with a smooth vibe combing Chicago South Side Soul with Nashville Americana.  Mitch Meade is an accomplished singer song writer who will be performing between acts to keep the music flowing.
