We are trying to stay on top of all the DIY music festivals happening throughout Central Illinois right now! This upcoming weekend we already told you about Mates Fest #9 happening over in Peoria. Well, in another city also in the center of our state- Champaign/Urbana there is another weekend-long festival taking place and that is “Dark Tower Fest” – a new festival happening for the first time. We count 26 bands on the lineup listed below playing throughout the two days. Those include Springfield’s own Pryss and Livin’ Thing. Let’s take a look at the list:
CAN’-KA NO REY
GAS UP YR HEARSE!!
KENTUCKY MEAT SHOWER
You can find out which of those bands play which days on the Dark Tower Fest event page right here. The fest will be taking place at house venues “Blips N Chitz” and “Ghost Planet.” Admission is $10 per day or $15 for both days. Nice! Stream some music by Grief Seeds from North Carolina, who are playing day 2 of the fest on the player below.
