After a three-year hiatus, the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula will once again play host to an annual music festival.
This will be the 16th annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, and the first one to be held in the area since 2019. The festival will feature a wide variety of musical styles, from Americana and bluegrass to folk and R&B, rock and blues, and beyond.
A pair of days at the festival, happening on August 26 and 27, will set you back $95. The state parks in Ontonagon County also require a recreation passport to enter.
It was difficult for us during the downtime,” says festival director Chery Sundberg. We’ve had three years to reflect on our dedication to the festival, plan for its future, and make any necessary adjustments so that we can come back stronger than ever before, at a time when the demand for live music is higher than ever.
Discounts are available for children aged 7-12, and a day pass can be purchased for $50.
Those who can make it to the music festival in northern Michigan this weekend can see JigJam, an Irish band, on Friday, and The Slambovian Circus of Dreams, a Washington State band, on Saturday as the two main headliners.
Circus of Dreams, Armchair Boogie, The Talbott Brothers, and Raye Zaragoza are among the other performers who will be there.
When festival organizers put on the first show in 2005, they made history as they put on the first concert ever held in a Michigan state park.
The event is being coordinated by Friends of the Porkies. Read more about the engaging articles published on TheActiveNews.Com by coming back regularly.
