SHINNSTON WV: Announcing a new music festival happening at Ferguson Memorial Park August 11-12 2023. The first annual Shindy Music Festival will highlight indie music of all genres from across the state! The event will also have national recording artists headlining each night. This free event is open to the public and will feature 20 bands over two days, food trucks, bounce houses for children and access to the city pool, all with a family friendly environment. The city is happy to partner with Music Show Production, headed by famed DJ, Kevin Nicholas, to provide sound and lighting for Shindy.

“Shindy” is the Gaelic word from which we derive shindig; it means a larger raucous party. Event organizers say the name works perfectly for their event, combining the name of the founder of the town, Levi Shin with the word indie = Shindy.

The lineup will include Phil Joel (formerly of The Newsboys), Zona Hester, Heavy Hitters Band, Dream Trippers, Aristotle Jones, Emmalea Deal and the Hot Mess, Ryan Cain & The Ables, and many more! Follow The Shindy Music Festival on Facebook for further updates on artists and vendors.
