Presented by TGIF Entertainment, MI Fest 2011 takes over the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn Sept. 17. Located south of Jackson, Mich, MI Fest promises the state’s best food, industry, art and, of course, music. Lots and lots of music.

With Jack White originally hailing from Detroit and Brendan Benson from Royal Oak, you could consider The Raconteurs to be one-half Michigander. The band will be joined by several artists from White’s Third Man Records. The indie label’s Third Man Record Store will also be at the festival.

Other acts hailing from the Great Lakes State include Bob Seger’s saxman, Alto Reed, heading up his own group under the moniker Alto Reed’s AllStars. There’s also Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad fame, and Mitch Ryder who was rockin’ long before most of the musicians on the lineup had ever picked up an instrument.

Also appearing will be Bear Lake, Hot Club Of Detroit, Jill Jack, Marnée, The Howling Diablos, The Juliets, The Romantics, Ty Stone & The Truth, and Whitey Morgan & The 78’s, all with deep Michigan roots.

The debut of MI Fest also features The Rockets, the Detroit rock band founded in the ‘70s by former Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels members Jimmy McCarty and Johnny “Bee” Badanjek.

“Michigan has produced some of the best music in the world and we need to take great pride in leveraging that asset,” TGIF Entertainment president George Gikas said in a statement. “Aside from being the Motor City, the next thing everyone associates with Michigan is our great music from Motown to Madonna, Bob Seger to Kid Rock and Eminem. We don’t have to look past our backyard to provide a great festival full of music and our vision is to provide that Michigan experience in a family friendly environment.”

Early-bird tickets are now available until July 8. The general onsale begins July 9. VIP packages and camping passes will also be available. Visit MI-Fest.com for more information.
