What is The Wagon Wreck?

The Wagon Wreck Music Festival will feature an explosion of talent from all over Michigan and the Midwest in a two-day musical celebration on Dec. 14 & 15 at Live Ann Arbor. The lineup is currently set to include:

  • Two Sets from Dragon Wagon
  • Rumpke Mountain Boys
  • Covert  
  • Third Coast Kings
  • Josh Davis (of Steppin' in It)
  • Rootstand
  • Me 3 Mind
  • Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellies
  • Ben Daniels Band
  • Match by Match
  • October Babies
  • Hullabaloo
  • Ghost City Searchlight
  • People Being Human
  • Decent Folk
  • Johnny Lunchbox
  • Acoustic sets from Adam Lebeaux, Tony LaJoye, Cold Tone Harvest, and more.

The Wagon Wreck lineup celebrates Dragon Wagon's roots music tradition and the local and regional talent we want to support as a band. We consider these musicians to be our friends and family, and hope to see them succeed as artists. 

What am I funding?

As a funder, you are helping to create a festival that supports local artists and musicians, and we would hope to make this a yearly event. Your dollars will go exclusively toward paying the other bands and marketing the event. Consider being a part of this first-year festival, and give the Wagon Wreck a permanent home here in Southeastern Michigan.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We anticipate a couple challenges...Let's call them "opportunities." We obviously want to get people in the door to see the music and support the artists behind the music. Our robust marketing plan includes showering the Internet with news of our Kickstarter and the event, blanketing Southeastern Michigan and Northwestern Ohio with posters, handbills and swag, and getting the musicians themselves behind the festival so they help us promote the event.

But most importantly, we want to ensure that each band member and musician that performs at the festival gets paid. It's important to us that we provide not only a venue for musicians to showcase their talent, but adequate compensation for that talent. So here we are at Kickstarter. Getting our musician paid... Help us reach that goal!

FAQ

  • If you are looking to buy 2, 3, 7, or a million tickets to the Wagon Wreck, that's easy. Just pledge the total amount of the tickets ($15 for a Friday ticket, $15 for a Saturday ticket and $30 for both days), and send us a message letting us know the names that will need to be on the will call list at the Wagon Wreck. You will forfeit any higher reward than the value of the tickets, but you will get all your tickets at once. Choose the multiple tickets reward to do this. Thanks!
