Hog Daze festival lineup announced

BY Caleb Amick - ctreport@indy.rr.com

From Aug. 9 through Aug. 11, Marion will be hosting the 10th annual Hog Daze, Marion’s very own motorcycle and music festival.

Hog Daze this year will feature a variety of entertainment from local to nationally-known bands.

Headlining this year’s festival will be Great White, a rock band which has had four number one videos on MTV and has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide.

Hog Daze will also feature local artists such as Glo Stik Willy as well as nationally known artists such as Alex Williams and Dale Watson and His Lone Stars.

“This year we have an eclectic mix of genres, a little bit of something for everyone,” said Andy Whitton, the entertainment committee chairman for Hog Daze.

Whitton said the music aspect of Hog Daze has been growing, with increased interest from bands and their agents in the last year.

More than 80 bands have applied to perform at the Hog Daze, Whitton said. Twelve are slated to perform in this year’s festival.

In addition to the music and motorcycles, there will be a Grant County Observation ride, a beer tent, motorcycle shows, burn-out contest, field events, a motorcycle swap meet, a pin-up girl contest and a church service on Sunday morning.

Hog Daze will take place near Ballard Field east of Downtown Marion, on Ind. 18, five miles west of I-69. Camping and RV parking spaces are available. Admission is $10 per person. For more information visit www.hogdaze.com or Home of the Hog on Facebook.
