Read about last year’s festival in The Daily Mining Gazette, August 27, 2012

The Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, presented by the Friends of the Porkies, is a unique 3-day musical event held annually the weekend before Labor Day weekend.

The festival takes place at the ski hill and chalet area in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, and it features Americana, folk, blues, bluegrass, contemporary music, and more from top-class regional and national touring acts.

Approximately 1,250 people per day will experience unforgettable performances on the festival’s 2 outdoor stages.  Audience members can sit back, relax, and enjoy the very best in music … in an intimate and natural setting unlike any other.  In addition to our Peace Hill and Singing Hills Stages, a third acoustic stage, the “busking barn,” offers amateurs and professionals alike the opportunity to jam and share their talent for tips.

As children are the future of music, the festival offers special children’s ticket pricing. A children’s tent, located on the festival grounds, offers fun and entertaining activities throughout the weekend.

Please visit the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival web site at www.porkiesfestival.org for more information on this year’s event, including dates, performers, schedules, tickets, and general information.
