Midwest Fest is an annual festival in Mt. Pleasant the weekend of September 28th through October 1st. It features indie, folk, electronic, experimental and pop bands from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Oftentimes, the draw of a music festival is who you’ve heard of, but one of the best things about Midwest Fest is who you haven’t heard of! There’s 20+ bands over 4 nights and some great Michigan acts.
Check out this list: W. Michael Freer (Roscommon), Jes Kramer, Ghost Heart, The Crane Wives, Stepdad (Grand Rapids), Morseville Bridge, Empty Orchestra (Flint), Mountains for Clouds, Yoke (Midland), Newday Dreamers, Jetpack On!, Joe Hertler + The Rainbow Seekers, Bloomill (Mt. Pleasant), Chris Bathgate (Pinckney) Lightning Love, Nathan K. (Ypsilanti), Phantasmagoria, The High Strung (Detroit), Elliot Street Lunatic, Frontier Ruckus (Lansing).
