Local Bands Announced

If you've been as anxious as me to find out which local bands will be planing at our festival, you're gonna be happy!! We've got bands booked from Sault Ste. Marie, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Boston all to play at our Summer Festival!

Line up includes:
Nixxon Dixxon, Clown Sack, Electric Motor Fish, Rock Camp (Youth Group), Elipzis, and Paul Perry all from Sault Ste. Marie, Showdown from Lansing, Dannison from Grand Rapids, Finding Clyde from Essexville, and Stilrize from Boston.

I know one member, Tony Rogers, who plays with both Clown Sack and Electric Motor Fish. He's very excited to play. "It’s always a great opportunity when you have a chance to play in front of thousands of people. We have a lot of talented musicians locally and this is a great place to show it.” he recently told me.

Local bands will perform daily from noon – 1 p.m.; 2 – 3 p.m. and 4 – 5 p.m. A schedule of when each group will be playing will be available on-line the week before the festival.

Having these local bands will give our festival the local flare we wanted - and it allows us to have music the entire day of the event!

Remember, the casino’s three-day summer festival July 22 to 24 will feature four national headlining acts, including1980s rockers Bret Michaels and Vince Neil, modern rockers 3-Doors Down, and American rock icon Meat Loaf. The festival will also feature celebrity appearances with autograph sessions with Henry “The Fonz” Winkler, former Lion football players Billy Sims and Herman Moore and the famous Playboy Playmates, Shannon James, Brittany B. and Amber Campisi, celebrity chef & spinmaster Marc Weiss "The DJ Chef", and a strolling magician.

The festival will also have food and merchant vendors, a golf simulator, bumper cars, Rock Band Wii, a NASCAR Simulator, electronic bull riding, Baggo tournament, daily food eating contests and fireworks at the end of each day.

A three-day pass to the festival is $75, while single-day passes are $50. The three day passes include entry into all concerts and three days of festival activities. A limited number of tickets will be available. Cash sales will be available at the gate during the festival. All festival events will be held at Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie from noon to 10 p.m., rain or shine. Admission to the concerts is general. Gates for the festival open at 11 a.m.
