RIVER LIGHTS Music Festival is a collaboration between community members & local college students seeking to illuminate South Bend as a prime destination for original music in the Midwest. 21 volunteer committee members across 7 groups are working together to showcase awe-inspiring music & unforgettable experiences in the resurgent community of South Bend, Indiana!
This three day music fest will take place May 5-7.
-Thursday May 5th will feature small shows at 3 key locations in the city: O'Rourkes near ND campus, The Well on Mishawaka Ave and Chicory Cafe in DTSB.
-Friday May 6th ticketed events will take place at the Century Center Island and an electronic after-party at Club Fever
-Saturday, May 7th will be ticketed as well with two stages setup at Seitz Park and the parking lot of the emporium building. The after party for that night will be at Corby's.
-Rain location for all shows is Madison Center gym
As a new music festival our goal is to build processes, procedures & structures to enable the event to be financially sustainable and grow in the years to come. We are anticipating a total attendance of 2,500+ ppl with a potential economic impact of over $125,000 on the city (assuming a $50 spend per person)
We are confident that is just the start of something impressively AWESOME for South Bend
