In years prior, BAALS Music Festival and House4aHouse have been strictly electronic dance music(EDM) events with DJs playing hour long sets in front of the growing crowds. In 2015 though, BAALS is going with a new approach to the downtown festival. Multi-genre is a thing of the present and speaks to a much bigger crowd of people besides just EDM music lovers.
In 2015, genres such as EDM, hip-hop, rap, folk rock, acoustic, jam bands, etc will be looked at to perform at the festival. Festivals such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza stress the multi-genre feel to a festival so that they can bring in many different types of music lovers. Acts such as Billy Joel, Deadmau5, Kanye West, Mumford and Sons, and many different artists/groups are projected to play at these festivals in 2015
BAALS Music Festival‘s goal from day 1 has been bringing as many people to downtown Fort Wayne, IN and revitalizing the city itself. With these new music genres we will be including on August 1, 2015 we expect to pull over 10,000 people to the festival at Headwaters Park Pavilion.
BAALS is doing something new this year regarding artists; we are opening up an application page for artists to apply to! If you are an artist that would be interested in performing at BAALS Music Festival we would love to have you APPLY to get on the lineup for 2015! We want to broaden our lineup so any artist is open to apply!
