Kevin Barnes Will Not Perform at Lake Worth-It Festival

Of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes will not perform at Lake Worth-It on August 7 due to the economic climate and low sponsorship, according to organizer Cecil Lunsford. Barnes was previously slated as the headliner for the daylong festival in Lake Worth's Bryant Park. In connection with the announcement, Lunsford adds that the two-stage event has been condensed to one stage. "This

still provides ample room for our bands to perform an amazing show and

will in no way affect the production quality of the festival," Lunsford says. "We are

still expecting a big turnout on August 7 and look forward to seeing

Upcoming Events

you all there."

As the lineup currently stands, John Ralston & Invisible Music are

set to headline. The rest of the bill includes: Black Weather Shaman,

Black Finger, the Jameses, Guy Harvey, Jesse Baumann, the Dewars,

Everymen, Kill Now?!, Sweet Bronco, Yellow #6, Bladesong, the People

Upstairs, Angry Pudding, Fire Zuave, Leading the Heroes, the Ridicules, Blond Fuzz, the Hard Richards, and Wayside Flyer.
 


Based upon County Grind's conversations with multiple sources,

there is a slim possibility that Kevin Barnes will still perform in Palm

Beach County sometime during the weekend. As we have more information,

we will update this posting.

The First Annual Lake

Worth-It Music and Art Festival is approaching, and we at Shaman Stick

Productions are counting down the days to celebrate Lake Worth, its

musicians, and the promise of an excellent day of fun and music.

However, due to the condition of the economy, and low sponsorship, the

scope of the inaugural festival has been changed slightly. Firstly,

Kevin Barnes will not be appearing at Lake Worth-It; in keeping with the

spirit and essence of the festival as an exciting showcase of our

eclectic and talent-filled city, we felt it best to put our available

finances into production. Moreover, in an effort to limit the costs

associated with putting the festival together we are not building a

second stage. Instead, we are dividing the main-stage in half. This

still provides ample room for our bands to perform an amazing show and

will in no way affect the production quality of the festival. We are

still expecting a big turnout on August 7 and look forward to seeing

you all there.

10 a.m. Saturday, August 7, at Bryant Park, Golfview and Lake Avenue, Lake Worth.

Tickets cost $20 in advance, $30 at the door.
