 Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival Returns To Bowling Green September 28 & 29, 2012

Curated By Members of Cage The Elephant




Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival returns for another great year in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, September 28 & 29, 2012, with new partners and fresh inspiration. The festival, founded in 2008, was adopted in 2010 by Kentucky sons Cage The Elephant as a way to honor their roots and further develop the local music and arts community.

C3 Presents, the producers behind Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Festival have teamed up with the band to help execute their vision of bringing Bowling Green its own music festival. “The guys have been friends of mine for a long time. I’m a fan of them as artists and I’m happy that we are partnering on their latest creative endeavor,” says Charlie Jones, Partner at C3 Presents.

The boutique festival will include two nights of camping and one full day of music, with endless activities in between, from a massive game of capture the flag with the band, to movies, to fire-side acoustic sets; this festival is as much about standing around the stage, as it is about participation between fans and artists.

“We want Starry Nights to be a kind of massive version of the house parties where Cage The Elephant got its start,” says Cage The Elephant Frontman, Matthew Shultz. “Share some tunes with friends, bands play, crazy antics, a late night flick and then pancakes in the morning. We want to create a child like fun house for big kids like ourselves, break all the rules and do the crazy things that most festivals wouldn’t dare dream of.”

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

Hailed as “…one of rock’s best young bands,” by Rolling Stone, Cage The Elephant had a successful 2011 with the release of their album Thank You Happy Birthday, a wildly-successful headlining North American tour and their critically acclaimed fall dates with the Foo Fighters. Their debut self-titled album was just certified gold by the RIAA and their current sophomore album Thank You Happy Birthday (RCA Records) has garnered the band rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, New York Times, LA Times, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, People and Alternative Press who heralded it “one of the best rock albums of the year.” With performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, it’s easy to see why Rolling Stone named Cage The Elephant “one of rock’s best young bands” and Thank You Happy Birthday as one of the best albums 2011.
