Are you jam band fans ready? The Werk out is having its 10th anniversary, and it’s kind of a big deal! The Werk Out is held at Legend Valley in Thornville, OH August 1st through August 3rd. The festival has been doing a slow drip dropping one artist announcement per day and the final artist announcement includes the capstone of announcing Dopapod fresh off their mighty return at The Capitol Theatre as well as STS9, Steel Pulse, We Are The Champions: A Tribute to Queen (performed by members of Turkuaz, Papadosio, The Werks, Dopapod, and The Motet) and Pink Floyd’s The Wall: featuring members of Papadosio, Dopapod and The Werks.
Watching STS9, Dopapod, and Big Gigantic will be worth the long wait for this festival’s diamond anniversary. Mark your calendars for this one. I’m excited to see what this festival is truly about, as most of my friends say so many wonderful things about the bands, the vibe, and the crowd. I can already tell I’m in for a magical experience.
Rooted in community, The Werk Out Festival wanted to ensure every artist got a moment in the spotlight. “We feel like EVERY act we book are some of the best musicians in the world, and we want to showcase everyone individually to give everyone the attention they deserve!,” says festival producer and drummer for The Werks, Rob Chafin.
The 10th-anniversary celebration honors the festival’s dedication to the community it has fostered in Legend Valley while simultaneously rounding up their most robust lineup to date. In addition to three nights of The Werks, the festival’s namesake group will be joined by Big Gigantic, STS9, The Lennon Claypool Delirium, Steel Pulse, The Floozies, Twiddle, Matisyahu and more.
