Local music, now is your time. You ask for something big for local music and here it is. We took submissions for two weeks back in July and had hoped there would be a lot of interest in the 16 spots available for the event’s performers and on its accompanying for-charity compilation CD. The results were even better than we could have hoped for. More than 50 bands sent material in, making the already unsavory job of whittling down bands we like that much more difficult. After a lot of careful consideration, we believe we’ve put together an outdoor all-local music festival representative and worthy of The Springfield Scene.
We’re shutting down South Street for an entire day between McDaniel and Walnut on Saturday, September 19. We’re putting 2 stages and a DJ tent on it to run from roughly 11:30am–11:00pm with music going all day. There will be food available and cool sponsors showing you what they’re all about. There will also be a few bars open all day as well to serve as beer gardens (being that you can’t have alcohol on a public street thanks to Springfield’s open container law). Regardless, this will be a day full of fun and music with 18 bands + DJ’s spinning all day, on South Street and best of all…its free.
