The Buckle-Up Music Festival: a 'celebration of music from the heartland'

Bill Donabedian, founder and owner of the Bunbury Music Festival, is bringing yet another great musical celebration to town.

The Buckle-Up Music Festival [July 18-20] will take place at Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove and will feature dozens of acts for 3 days on 6-stages throughout the parks.

Many of the rules and policies of the Bunbury will be echoed at Buckle-Up, including the family-friendly atmosphere which includes free admission for kids under 10 and gate re-entry. 

Featuring such groups as Alabama, Eli Young Band, J.T. Hodges, and The Lone Bellow, The Buckle-Up is being touted as a 'celebration of music from the heartland.'  It is anticipated that the schedule will also include a balance of local, regional and nationally-touring performers.

Artists wishing to be considered for inclusion in both the Buckle-Up and Bunbury music festivals are asked to submit an electronic press kit by January 31, 2014.
