Garfield Park in Indianapolis will play host to a new, two-day music festival produced by Ohio-based Elevation Group. WonderRoad, which will take place in June, will be headlined by rock bands Vampire Weekend and Lord Huron.
The event is being presented in partnership with Indianapolis-based concert promoter MOKB Presents. Three stages will feature several musical acts, including bands Bastille, Chvrches, and Milky Chance, among others.
“Indianapolis is an important part of Elevation’s history. Our company was built around music and motorsports and I am proud to say that we have been a part of two Indy 500 victories,” Elevation President Denny Young said in a news release. “As we continue our expansion of highly curated festivals that include top global acts, a fan-friendly environment plus local artistic, civic and corporate involvement, Indianapolis is the best next market for us.”
In conjunction with Wednesday’s announcement of the festival, WonderRoad officials announced a $25,000 grant to Indy Parks. The funding will be used to underwrite the 2022 Indy Parks Summer Concert and Movie series.
“Parks are known for being welcoming places for people to relax, exercise, and enjoy activities and special events with their families and friends,” said Phyllis Boyd, director of Indy Parks. “We are thrilled to host WonderRoad as we invite park visitors to explore Garfield Park while enjoying an impressive display of artists and music.”
Organizers say they expect some 15,000 attendees for the inaugural festival. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
