13th Goose On The Lake Festival

HITS 13TH YEAR ON JUNE 6-7, 2008

What began in 1996 as a small private concert for diehard fans of the legendary rock group Goose Creek Symphony has developed into a yearly "reunion" for folks that have a certain way of living and a certain taste in music. The Goose On The Lake Music Festival after twelve years has never been, nor ever will be a huge gathering of 30 bands on multiple stages jammed into a short weekend. What makes this festival so special is the light crowd, the carefully selected music and the overall energy that one feels when driving onto the farm of Lloyd and Donna Settle hidden deep in the country an hour north of Nashville in the small rural community of Allegre.

2007's show was recorded for a live album and broadcast on XM Radio in February. This year's show is set to be even more exciting with a diverse group of artists. Goose Creek Symphony, a band noted for being one of the first bands to blend a wide array of roots music, will be playing alongside artists who believe in that same concept. Barefoot Jerry is scheduled to make their triumphant return on Saturday, June 7th. Friday night the 1970's Goose Creek band will reunite for the first time since the end of that historic decade. Other performers scheduled are Todd Snider, Webb Wilder, Velvet Water and The Farewell Drifters.

No sponsors, no fancy light shows, no gimmicks, no uncomfortable security, no bullshit. This festival is as down home as it gets. Goose on the Lake invites you to be a part of their family reunion far away from stress of everyday city life and deep in the heart of ol' Kentucky.

Awww, don't poke fun. This is probably great news to some pretty cool old school heads. You guys did just make me laugh my ass off though.

This will be my 7th Goose On The Lake and it never gets old. There is NOTHING else like it. It's the one thing that I look forward too every year. It's an extraordinary thing that no one could understand or appreciate until you've experienced it for yourself. Hope to see you all there! Peace

this is one thing that can't be missed, if you go once you'll most likely go again, be ready for about anything, wind, rain, sunshine and heat- cow patties, and deep ditches,, beer and shine, the moon leaving and the sun comin up, guitars pickin and fiddles playin! now get in and lets go!

Great music, fun times, all on a beautiful stretch of private land by the water. Bring your tents and be ready to groove to some unbelievably good music. This is the place where generations of Gooseheads gather to share Goose Creek's music. Don't miss it!
