Years before the actual word 'jamband' emerged as a genre or even a word, the Home Grown Music Network was there helping talented independent bands reach fans on a new level. Through its nationwide collective of bands, venues, stores and fans the Home Grown Music Network (HGMN) has catalyzed two decades of incredible audio offerings including the 2004 launching of Harmonized Records, going on to introduce the world to such powerful scene bands such as Lotus, Perpetual Groove, Garaj Mahal, The Motet and more.
HGMN turns 20 in 2015 and its birthday is a crossroads; looking deep to its roots while solidly continuing to be a vital player in the modern, independent music industry. Today that new model announces a celebratory festival in its honor.
Held October 1-3 at Harmony Stage in Mebane, NC, jam fans will light the birthday candles at the Home Grown Music Network 20th Anniversary Festival featuring these first round artists:
Purple Schoolbus (original lineup)
Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover
Big Daddy Love
Electric Soul Pandemic
Rumpke Mountain Boys
The Hip Abduction
Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey
plus 15 more artists still to be announced
With 20 years being celebrated over three days with music on two stages, the festival offers a seasoned mix of artisan vendors, visual art, onsite camping and hot showers on a beautiful 300+ acre farm in Central North Carolina between Greensboro and Durham.
