Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival Announces 2012 Line-Up

Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival returns for another great year in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, September 28 & 29, 2012. The two-day, two-stage festival will feature a diverse lineup including Cage the Elephant, Portugal. The Man, Manchester Orchestra, Mimosa, Justin Townes Earle, The Whigs and Sleeper Agent, among many others.

“We chose bands and DJ’s that move us, and that we thought would fit with the vibe of the festival,” says Cage The Elephant frontman, Matthew Shultz. “Starry Nights is about getting everyone together for a good time – It’s definitely about the music, but also, art, games, and just being out there under the stars.”

The vital Kentucky music scene is where Cage got their start, and preserving that opportunity for other local acts is a top priority. To that end, the festival has reserved a handful of slots for local bands. More information on that will follow.

Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival takes place September 28 & 29, 2012 just outside of Bowling Green, KY at Ballance Farms. 

Tickets are $45 including fees and camping.
