Northwoods Music Festival
Sunday, July 29, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
About Northwoods Music Festival
The festival idea was "Hatched" on promoter Scott Johnson's weekly radio show "Home Town Sounds", WWJC Radio 850 AM. Performer Kristy Marie was performing on the show and the conversation- interview evolved into the need for Superior, WI to have a showcase of the area talent. This thought directly matched the model of Scott's radio show, the idea took hold and on July 17th 2010 the first festival was under way. Scott is also the owner of Northwoods Music in Superior and making the connection to the store and radio show was an easy fit.
"My initial idea was to just survive the day, but by the end of the event I could visualize a festival that could grow into a true iconic event for the city. I could see vendor's tents everywhere, food , art, and music. There was no way that this was going to be a one- time event, but rather something that I can nurture and grow for our area's performing artist. Being that the Festival wears the brand name of my personal business, I will stop at nothing to make this a successful enterprise."
...Scott Johnson, Sr Owner of Northwoods Music and the Northwoods Music Festival
The festival has been generously supported by our local business sponsors. Without their continued support the event would not have become the success that it is today.
The format for the festival was to provide a large venue showcase for the Duluth-Superior performing artist. In order to make that concept evolve the festival design includes up and coming national touring artist as headline performers. With that idea in mind you put everyone on a fantastic stage on the shoreline of Lake Superior….and presto…music festival. The event features a variety of music, with a focus on the independent singer-songwriter.
