    BATB Festival Map TH

    Starting last year we expanded the festival grounds. Now we shutdown Michigan Avenue and it spreads out the festival so it doesn't get as crowded as years past. Since the last few years we have gotten rain we have added more coverage. The covered areas are the main concourse and under the Chevy Terrace in the right corner of the outfield.

    • Delilah DeWylde

      Delilah DeWylde

      Main Stage: 6:30 to 8pm
      Delilah DeWylde got her start in 2005. Just like rockabilly originators Johnny Cash, Bill Haley and Carl Perkins, this Michigander cut her teeth on steel-guitar driven country in the style popularized by Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb and Webb Pierce. But the draw of the big beat was irresistible, and over time the band’s approach has become sharper and tighter. Not self-consciously retro, Delilah remains committed to hand-crafted American music that stands at the crossroads of creativity and craftsmanship, liberally drawing from honky tonk country, rockabilly and surf music
    • HOIST- A Tribute To The Music Of Phish

      HOIST- A Tribute To The Music Of Phish

      Main Stage: 3pm to 6pm

      A Lansing based group dedicated to paying tribute to the music of Phish. With a new set every night and surprises at every turn, Hoist will not disappoint. Come celebrate the music of Phish with us and all the fun it brings.

    • The Swift Brothers

      The Swift Brothers

      Terrace Stage: 6:30 to 8pm
      The Swift Brothers is a folk-rock group hailing from Lansing, MI. Artist Mark Collins & Dan Laird share a strong musical history that spans over a decade. Drawing on their vast life experiences, The Swift Brothers lend thought provoking lyrics with rich harmonies. With a sound that has been compared to the Lumineers, Vance Joy, or Guster, The Swift Brothers sample from multiple styles and genres to bring an experience sure to be enjoyed by all.
    • Shelby and Jake

      Shelby and Jake

      Terrace Stage: 4:30 to 6pm
