No. 19 For Moondance Jam

10:01 AM Wednesday 7/7/10 | |

Plenty of rock and a television crew recording the festival for DirectTV’s Concert Series awaits Moondance Jam fans descending on Walker, Minn., July 14-17.

Like many festivals, Moondance Jam’s first day is devoted to fun acts like tribute bands and party rockers. Helping the festival launch its 19th year of bringing the rock to Minnesota will be the Tom Petty / Heartbreakers tribute band Free Fallin as well as Hairball, Mountain Ash and The Minnesota Whiskey Piggz.

July 15 kicks off with Tonic, followed by Hoobastank, Collective Soul and Buckcherry with Sammy Hagar & The Wabos topping the bill.

On Friday, July 16, Moondance Jam welcomes The Smithereens, Don Felder, Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon while Saturday begins with Blackberry Smoke and ends with Lynyrd Skynyrd with Black Stone Cherry, Cinderella and Johnny Lang sandwiched in between.

Television comes to Moondance Jam this year with production company Blaze TV covering the festival from top to bottom, resulting in 10 one-hour shows featuring performers like Hagar, REO Speedwagon, Buckcherry, Lang, Hoobastank, Collective Soul, Black Stone Cherry and Pat Benatar. Watch for the programs to air later this summer on The 101 Network.

VIP and “Rockstar” tickets are already gone, but there are still a few reserved camping sites available for the 18-and-over crowd. Other options include general admission and general camping. For more information, just click here for the Moondance Jam website.

    Moondance Jam is by far me and my wifes favorite thing to do every year!!!  The people that go year after year are a blast to be around and the music is great!  They really do a great job at putting together great line ups.  This year will be our fifth year in a row going to Moondance Jam!!  Ignore bigsled, he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    Moondance is the best. I count down the days and watch the line up fill in all thru the year. This going to be a banner year. The best group of friends / family you'll ever get to know, friendly staff, awesome everything. Can't wait.

    I look forward to Moondance Jam every year!  This will be my 5th year  and I'm a huge music fan.  It's fun to see who's going to be in the lineup every year and the best part is the atmosphere.  The campers, the workers to the owners.  You couldn't ask for anything more.  Some of my coolest and neatest friends I've meet have been from Moondance.  You gotta love it all.  Great music and wonderful people!

    Moondance Jam is by far the BEST festival I've ever been to. This is my 16th year attending. I usually go to 2-3 festivals each year but will never miss Moondance Jam. It has a great line-up of music and the people there are the most friendliest people you'll meet anywhere. I can't wait for July 14th!!

    This is my third Moondance Jam and it's the greatest time you'll have anywhere on the planet. It defies the laws of nature. Rock and Roll and a whole lot of fun. The music is great but the people you'll meet at Moondance are the best on the planet.

    I am pumped that Moondance finally gets some TV exposure. I go to 2 or 3 different festivals every year, but Moondance is the only one I never miss each year. It is the most organized, friendly and fun places to party. If you like rock and classic rock, camping and want to hang out with a bunch of friendly people, Moondance is for you. We drive 350 miles one way each year and the close you get to Walker the more beautiful it gets.

    This is the worst lineup they have ever had. A bunch of has beens that have trouble filling your local bar.

    I live in the twin cities but dont waste my time with the crappy lineups . They like to mix the genres up instead of putting all metal one day, classic rock the next, etc to try  so to get you to stay everyday.

    If warm beer , shorter set lists by your favorites and no hotels in sight  is your thing, check it out !
