Virginia Avenue Music Fest Beats for One and All

The third annual Virginia Avenue Music Fest will return to Indy’s beautiful Fountain Square from May 8 to 12. Festival-goers will support the local music scene, artists and businesses in Indianapolis, as well as connect with many fellow community members.

The lineup of more than 100 acts performing on multiple stages includes appearances by Brother O Brother, There Are Ghosts, Caleb McCoach, Okey Dokey, Charlie Ballantine and Fern Murphy. Stages will be set up at local shops and restaurants in Fountain Square and Fletcher Place.

The free, family-friendly, outdoor festival, originally known as the Virginia Avenue Folk Fest, was established in 2015 by Mike Angel and Patrick Burtch with the intent of bringing local musicians, businesses, artists and the community together. Proceeds from the event, sponsored in part by Founders Brewing, benefit Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.

Admission: Free. For more information including on VIP packages and merchandise, visit
