Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival returns for another great year in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, Sept. 28 & 29, 2012, with new partners and fresh inspiration. The festival, founded in 2008, was adopted in 2010 by Kentucky sons Cage the Elephant as a way to honor their roots and further develop the local music and arts community.
C3 Presents, the producers behind Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Festival have teamed up with the band to help execute their vision of bringing Bowling Green its own music festival. "The guys have been friends of mine for a long time. I'm a fan of them as artists and I'm happy that we are partnering on their latest creative endeavor," says Charlie Jones, Partner at C3 Presents.
The boutique festival will include two nights of camping and one full day of music, with endless activities in between, from a massive game of capture the flag with the band, to movies, to fire-side acoustic sets; this festival is as much about standing around the stage, as it is about participation between fans and artists.
"We want Starry Nights to be a kind of massive version of the house parties where Cage the Elephant got its start," says CTE frontman Matthew Shultz. "Share some tunes with friends, bands play, crazy antics, a late night flick and then pancakes in the morning. We want to create a child like fun house for big kids like ourselves, break all the rules and do the crazy things that most festivals wouldn't dare dream of." Mmm, pancakes, said in Homer Simpson voice.
Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival takes place Sept. 28 & 29, 2012 just outside of Bowling Green, KY at Ballance Farms.
