April 26th through 29th, MOOSE will be sponsoring the 4th annual LAUNCH Music Conference and Festival in Downtown Lancaster. Held in Freedom Hall at the Lancaster County Convention Center, LAUNCH is a must-attend event for all music lovers. This event is a great opportunity for music performers and lovers alike to enjoy educational sessions and live entertainment. The conference portion of the event includes workshops and open panel discussions on a variety of topics with leading industry professionals. Attendees will have the chance to network with industry members as well as other artists.
Then, each evening, artists will take to the stage at venues stretching throughout a four block radius of the city. There will be a variety of performers, from developing acts to established artists. Performances will range in musical styles catering to different tastes in music. Each night of the festival there will be a different headlining band performing. Headliners this year include: Rusted Root, The Felice Brothers, and Texas in July. Rusted Root will be performing Thursday April 26, The Felice Brothers will be performing Friday April 27, and Texas in July will be performing Saturday April 28.
Information about registration and ticket purchases can be found on the events website. As LAUNCH approaches, be sure to check back to MOOSE’s blog. I will be providing updates as details become available for this music filled weekend in the city!
