Announcing Lost City Music Festival 2013: August 8th-11th

Lost City Music Festival 2013

Mine All Mine Records is proud to announce the second annual Lost City Music Festival in Madison, Wisconsin. The festival will be held from August 8th to 11th with shows at the High Noon Saloon, the Dragonfly Lounge and Bright Red Studios (+ one announced secret venue).

After the success of last year’s festival, the crew behind the Lost City Music Festival decided to aim for focus with the second iteration. This year, the Lost City crew has put a heavier emphasis on local acts and tightly paired billings. The Lost City Music Festival 2013 will be an even better experience than before.

The Lost City Music Festival was founded in part to fill a cultural gap the crew perceived. That is, a low-cost music event featuring a range of styles and a focus on local and regional artists. The crew has continued to listen to the community’s concerns and needs in regards to last year’s music festival and the scene(s) as a whole.

In keeping with that tradition, all performers at the Lost City Music Festival 2013 will be fairly compensated for their contributions. A portion of all sales will continue to benefit local music charities, and artists will be given the option to donate to these charities at their own discretion.
