Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival returns for another great year in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky, September 28 & 29, 2012. The two-day, two-stage festival will feature a diverse lineup including Cage the Elephant, Portugal. The Man, Manchester Orchestra, Mimosa, Justin Townes Earle, The Whigs and Sleeper Agent, among many others.
â€œWe chose bands and DJâ€™s that move us, and that we thought would fit with the vibe of the festival,â€ says Cage The Elephant frontman, Matthew Shultz. â€œStarry Nights is about getting everyone together for a good time â€“ Itâ€™s definitely about the music, but also, art, games, and just being out there under the stars.â€
The vital Kentucky music scene is where Cage got their start, and preserving that opportunity for other local acts is a top priority. To that end, the festival has reserved a handful of slots for local bands. More information on that will follow.
Starry Nights Music + Arts Festival takes place September 28 & 29, 2012 just outside of Bowling Green, KY at Ballance Farms.
Tickets are $45 including fees and camping.
Tickets will go on-sale on July 20th at 10:00 AM Eastern at www.starrynightsfestival.com

Hailed as â€œâ€¦one of rockâ€™s best young bands,â€ 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 â€œone of the best rock albums of the year.â€ With performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, itâ€™s easy to see why Rolling Stone named Cage The Elephant â€œone of rockâ€™s best young bandsâ€ and Thank You Happy Birthday as one of the best albums 2011.
