“We are excited at the opportunity to host WonderRoad in our city,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “Indianapolis is known for its thriving arts community, as well as a tradition of musical excellence and innovation. WonderRoad is a great fit within that rich history, and we look forward to extending Hoosier hospitality to those attending from across the country and neighborhoods right here at home.”
"Indianapolis is an important part of Elevation's history. Our company was built around music and motorsports and I am proud to say that we have been a part of two Indy 500 victories," stated Elevation president Denny Young. "As we continue our expansion of highly curated festivals that include top global acts, a fan-friendly environment plus local artistic, civic and corporate involvement, Indianapolis is the best next market for us. MOKB's Dan Kemer is one of my closest friends, who happens to be the very best concert promoter in this region. To have Dan, Josh (Baker) and the entire MOKB team by our side is a massive advantage."
In addition to hosting the festival at Garfield Park, WonderRoad has announced a $25,000 grant to Indy Parks. As a part of the festival launch, the grant will underwrite the 2022 Indy Parks Summer Concert and Movie series, an annual showcase of jazz, hip hop, funk, rhythm and blues, movies, and other performances in parks across the city.
“Parks are known for being welcoming places for people to relax, exercise, and enjoy activities and special events with their families and friends,” said Phyllis Boyd, Indy Parks director. “We are thrilled to host WonderRoad as we invite park visitors to explore Garfield Park while enjoying an impressive display of artists and music.”
