Kentucky Knife Fight
Local favorite band Kentucky Knife Fight opened up on the BMI stage with the group’s usual bluegrass-rock sound, witty lyrics and all-around rhythm.

J. Roddy Walston & The Business
J. Roddy and his band didn’t let fans get too comfortable with one sound as they performed a hard rock-meets-blues set, complete with harmonies, screams, bluesy piano bits and out-of-this-world guitar riffs.

Modoc
This Nashville-based band didn’t disappoint with its rock-and-roll style and indie edge. Fans were pumped up as they watched this group of true music-lovers perform, and their strong but relatable sound came out loud and clear.

Ra Ra Riot
The indie-pop sound of Ra Ra Riot’s diverse group of musicians and singers rang out from the Forest Park stage Saturday afternoon, and the crowd was filled with many different fans. Sweet lyrics were matched with electronic-laden tunes and pitch-perfect harmonizing for this band’s famously wistful set.

Trampled By Turtles
With a plethora of great instruments (and musicians!), this backyard bluegrass-rock played each song with more intensity than the last. Fiddles, mandolins and banjos made this a dance-worthy set, and it was certainly difficult to at least not tap your foot or move your head as these guys took the show away!
