Have you ever wanted to go on tour with a band? The “I Slept with the Band” festival is your chance to follow a few regional acts on a short three day tour through northern Colorado and southern Wyoming over Labor Day weekend.
Now in it’s second year, I Slept with the Band happens on Friday August 31st at the Riverfork Inn in Drake Colorado, then moves to the Yard in Saratoga Wyoming on Saturday September 1st. The festival’s finale is at the Sunset in Alcova Wyoming on Sunday September 2nd.
Acts at this year’s festival represent a montage of music styles from this region and include Wendy Woo, A.J. Fullerton, Harley and the V Twins, Grace Kuch, Eef featuring Stacey Turpenoff, Ben Wah and the Blue Balls, Wooleye, J. Shogren, The Catcalls, Tyler T., Sasha Stone, The Symbols, Tony Zain, Riley Ann One Woman Band, The Honkey Longtonkers, Bobby Phillips, Timothy John, Lauren Michaels, B. Baldwin, Lori Anne, and Stompit.
Three of the twenty one acts will join each other for all three dates of the festival. Four acts will play at two dates, and the remainder will be at one of the shows.
“Our concept behind this event is to create a fun musical adventure over Labor Day weekend that would allow fans to experience a little bit of what we go through as a band when we’re on tour,” said Festival co-founder Mer Sal.
“The fact that I Slept with the Band festival is in three different locations makes it like no other festival that I know of”, said Mer. “Bring your tents, lawn chairs, swim suits, hula hoops and be prepared to have fun.”
One day and three day passes are available. More information and the complete schedule can be found at www.isleptwiththeband.com
