Norwalk Music Fest 2019 Will Offer Rock, Rap, Country & More on September 1st From rock to rap, country to contemporary pop, Norwalk Music Fest has it all: a full day of family- friendly entertainment, food and fun Sunday, September 1st, at Warrior Run Golf Course. And it's free admission. The second annual Music Fest, presented by Norwalk Hometown Pride and sponsored by City State Bank, offers 14 acts, kids' activities, food trucks and local vendors in an outdoor setting from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The event builds on the first event in September 2018 which drew a strong audience despite a rainy day: Headliner band for 2019 will be Best of Fools, a popular local band with a large following, reuniting just for Music Fest after a year-long hiatus. Known to many for performances at Lakewood Days, the band's repertoire includes original music and covers of such popular groups as the Dave Matthews Band. Other rock and pop-focused groups performing on Music Fest's two stages include Heartland Hallows, featuring musicians from Norwalk; Five Below which performs rock from the 1970s to today; and Trilk School of Rock bands Knocked Out Cold, the opening act; JAK'D offering 90's music; and Wait, What?t, a pop duo which has performed widely in the area. Popular with Central Iowa artists wherever he performs is returning singer Dan Trilk whose 2019 hit "Gas Station Hot Dog" is sure to be a Music Fest favorite. For the first time, Music Fest will feature a rap artist: Cold Saint, a rapper introduced to Norwalk audiences on Hometown Pride's 4th of July float after returning from live performances overseas. A number of performers showcase the wide-ranging variety of the day: acoustic, jazz and folk by Norwalk's own Sara Routh and her new band; reggae-infused music from the 90's by The Sheet; and country and more by The Treyor Wood Band. Also introducing a-new band is Elly Hoffmaier, a 2018 performer whose playlist ranges from The Beatles to Parton to Winehouse. Solo performers include pop from JeffArrandale, another Norwalk artist who has performed live at the Iowa State Fair and had a number one song on radio in 2018; and Brooke Kimball, reprising her 2018 performance with ukulele accompaniment. Gates open for Music Fest at 10:45 a.m. September 1st. New this year: ride the Absolute Repair Trolley from the Norwalk High School parking lot to Warrior Run Golf Course. Audiende members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and the spirit of fun for a great day of entertainment and food outdoors.
