    Oh, Starry Nights! The Cage the Elephant-curated festival is gonna be one hot ticket this September. We love a late September festival, we truly do!

    Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival returns for another great year in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, Sept. 28 & 29, 2012. The two-day, two-stage festival will feature a diverse lineup including Cage the Elephant, Portugal. The Man, Manchester Orchestra, Mimosa, Justin Townes Earle, The Whigs and Sleeper Agent, among many others.

    "We chose bands and DJs that move us, and that we thought would fit with the vibe of the festival," says Cage The Elephant frontman, Matthew Shultz. "Starry Nights is about getting everyone together for a good time – It's definitely about the music, but also, art, games, and just being out there under the stars."

    The vital Kentucky music scene is where Cage got their start, and preserving that opportunity for other local acts is a top priority. To that end, the festival has reserved a handful of slots for local bands. More information on that will follow.

    Tickets are $45 including fees and camping.

    Tickets will go on-sale on July 20 at 10AM Eastern at this location.
