"More bands, more venue, more buzz" at this year’s Deutschtown Music Festival

July 12, 2014 will mark the second annual free Deutschtown Music Festival. Building upon the immense success of last year’s event, the full-day festival will showcase more than 80 bands in at least eight outdoor and indoor venues, starting at 11 a.m. and ending late that night. There will be a wide variety of music styles, including jazz, blues, rock, bluegrass, German, and electronic. The daytime portion is designed to be a family-friendly event, with numerous food trucks, a flea market, and other activities to supplement the music. Throughout the day and night, a free shuttle with several stops in the Northside and Northshore will be available to the 3-5,000 people that are expected to attend.

The festival was conceived by neighborhood advocate Cody Walters. When asked about this year’s event, he said, "2,500 people discovered new music and our awesome neighborhood at last year’s festival. This year, we’re expecting double that number. We have more bands, more venues, more buzz. It’ll be a great time, guaranteed."
