Do you like your multi-day music festivals presented in small and intimate venues? Pygmalion has what you’re looking for.
Unlike mammoth festivals situated in fairgrounds, farms or just about any place big enough to hold the multitudes, the Pygmalion Music Festival spreads out the action by situating artists and bands in venues no larger than small theatres throughout the Champaign/Urbana area of southern Illinois.
Entering its sixth year and scheduled for Sept. 22-25, Pygmalion announces its first wave of bookings, including Roky Erickson with Okkervil River, Caribou, Built To Spill, Ted Leo And The Pharmacists, Surfer Blood, Holy F**k, Fang Island, Cults plus many more.
Why should the discerning festival fan check out Pygmalion? Artists and bands performing in intimate settings, near-perfect sightlines and short waits to enter the buildings are just a few of the reasons many concert lovers have made the trek to the Champaign/Urbana area every year.
Pygmalion will announce more bands and artists July 7 and puts single-day tickets on sale July 1. Festival passes are now available for $65. For more information, click here for the Pygmalion Music Festival website.
