BREAKING: Dawn and On Music Festival Announces 2021 Talent Lineup
With its roots in jam music, the festival’s lineup features local and national performers and remains diverse with a mix of rock, funk, bluegrass and folk bands.
The day-long festival, now heading into it’s sixth year will be headlined by Colorado jam rockers Magic Beans and Illinois Bluegrass favorites The Way Down Wanderers. Additionally, the festival will feature Wisconsin folk rockers Them Coulee Boys, Midwest super group Middle Western featuring David Zollo and William Elliot Whitmore, along with Peoria bluegrass staples Still Shine.
In addition to The Dawn, local acts Heads In Motion (A Talking Heads Tribute), The Textures and The Channel Cats will round out the bill.
This will mark Dawn and On’s second festival at Schwiebert Park (2020 was cancelled due to COVID) after hosting their first 4 years in Moline.. Tickets will be $20 via presale and at the gate with children 12 and under free.
When asked about this year’s event, The Dawn’s guitarist Sean Ryan simply said “It’s gonna be great.”
Festival co-director Mike Mathews added, “There were a lot of question marks when booking began, but we’re pretty stoked with how this lineup came together. It should be a good one!”
