New Festival Alert | Phases Of The Moon

January has become "Lineup Announcement Month" and we expect the lineups to keep coming throughout the next few weeks and beyond. Of particular note, we're excited to see what the lineup for the inaugural Phases Of The Moon Music + Art Festival holds when it's announced on January 28. Phases Of The Moon will take place at the 3,000 acre Kennekuk County Park in central Illinois from September 11 - 14 and we expect some big names to be on the bill.

One of the things that will separate Phases Of The Moon from other fests is the site itself, which contains a number of turn of the century buildings, rolling prairie lands, a 140 acre lake and plenty of walking trails. Event organizers promise, "four days of 100% organic, guaranteed feel good music, performed by nationally renowned musicians on 4 unique outdoor stages."

A statement issued by fest organizers explains the name, "We've always looked to the moon with a great fascination and wonder. Its phases represent a cycle of renewal and a guiding light through darkness. The moon exerts a powerful pull on both the ocean tides and on our human emotions. As we began to create our festival, we thought, what better way to express the uplifting power of music and its relationship with nature than by naming it Phases of the Moon!"

As mentioned, the initial lineup will be revealed on January 28. Tickets go on sale February 10.
