Middle Waves Music Festival

Fort Wayne’s very own Middle Waves Music Festival is fast approaching. With only one week away, we wanted to showcase a few things that people might not know about the brand new festival. Middle Waves takes place at Headwaters Park on Friday, September 16th and Saturday, September 17th. This all-ages festival offers so much more than music, and there is something for everyone to participate in. Check out the workshops and activities at The Village or grab a bite to eat at the food truck alley. For the final listing of local food trucks and vendors, visit the Middle Waves website on Wednesday, September 13th. If you plan to buy your ticket at the door, expect to wait in line. The anticipation of this event is high, and it’s bound to be packed with other festival goers who still need tickets. If you want to hit the festival running full force, then buy your tickets early. Single day passes and two day ticket passes are available for purchase on the website here. These passes give you access to the Main Stage where headliners Best Coast and The Flaming Lips are set to perform. The two additional stages do not require a ticket or wristband, so feel free to enjoy the great musical acts there. Because Middle Waves is an all-ages festival, children age 12 and under are admitted free with an adult ticket purchase. For the festival map and band schedule, check out the Middle Waves Festival Guide here. Middle Waves Music Festival is a non-profit organization and wouldn’t be possible without its volunteers. Many volunteer opportunities are still available and come with some great perks like free or discounted tickets. Pick your volunteer position and sign-up here. Fort Wayne, let’s make the inaugural Middle Waves Music Festival a resounding...
