Hey Indianapolis music fans, looking to get out of the Circle City this weekend and experience some camping, volleyball, and fantastic live Indiana music? Then load up the car, shepherd along the kids, and drive a few miles northeast out of Indianapolis to Muncie, Indiana, home of Whystock 2009.
The event promises to go over big; with over 20 different Indianapolis bands and bands from around Indiana, there’s going to be at least one or two acts you’ll want to see. Some of the bigger names at Whystock 2009 are pop superstar Jon McLaughlin, feel good singer-songwriter Rich Hardesty, and Lafayette, Indiana‘s American Idol darling, Amanda Overmyer. Other acts scheduled to play this Indianapolis festival include Falling Higher, Tax Brandywine, KontraBand, and Black Lung. There are two different stages at Whystock, so you might have to make a sacrifice or two to see the bands you want.
Whystock 2009 is a two day festival that’s got more than just music. It may not be as iconic or classic as Woodstock was, but this Indianapolis event offers beach volleyball, mini-golf, body piercing, face paint, food vendors, camping, and of course, live music. Unfortunately, there’s no Jimi Hendrix wailing out The Star Spangled Banner, but on the bright side there probably won’t be any fires either.
Whystock 2009 takes place at The Water Bowl (also the site of the Wuhnurth Music Festival a couple weeks ago) at the home of Ball State University. This celebration of music, fun, and family is going on this Saturday and Sunday, September 26 and 27. Tickets are $40 for the entire shebang or $25 for a singe day pass. And Ball State students are in luck: there’s a free shuttle that runs from the university to The Water Bowl.
