    • Citizen Zero

      Citizen Zero

      Main Stage: 7pm to 8pm

      Citizen Zero is an American hard rock band from Detroit, Michigan. Citizen Zero employ an engaging mix of honest, homespun rock & roll and arena-ready alternative rock/post-grunge that's drawn comparisons to Stone Temple Pilots, Theory of a Deadman, and Kings of Leon.

      In 2016 Citizen Zero inked a deal with Wind-Up Records and issued their much-anticipated debut studio long-player, State of Mind. Their debut single "Go (Let Me Save You)" peaked in the top 20 on the mainstream rock chart.

    • Lansing Unionized Vaudeville Spectacle

      Lansing Unionized Vaudeville Spectacle

      Main Stage: 4:30pm to 6pm
      The Lansing Unionized Vaudeville Spectacle is a Lansing, Michigan based variety show, puppet troupe, and gypsy jazz Americana orchestra. Since 2011 the LUVS have performed across Michigan's theatres and breweries- from the Keewenaw Peninsula to Kalamazoo. “Dream Machine,” their 2nd full-length album, was released in 2014 and recorded at Elm Street Studios in Lansing. Fans of Gogol Bordello, Cab Calloway, or Tom Waits will dig their eccentric, high energy live show. Off stage, the LUVS can be found enjoying a locally brewed lager, engaged in amateur electrical engineering, or deep within the sewers of Lansing, practicing The Secret Handshake.
    • Delilah DeWylde

      Delilah DeWylde

      Main Stage: 2:30 to 4pm
      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
    • Shelby and Jake

      Shelby and Jake

      Acoutic Stage: 6:30 to 8pm

They perform a wide variety of music from classic rock to country to current hits. Shelby & Jake have performed at weddings, festivals, local pubs and private parties.
