The boutique music gathering will offer a limited capacity of only 5,000 tickets per day. The smaller, down-home feel aligns with Holler On The Hill’s community-driven mission. With affordable prices and a communal aesthetic, it’s best described as equal parts neighborhood picnic, family reunion and music festival. Holler On The Hill was born from the notion that music festivals should be inclusive, and focus on attracting groups rather than individuals. Organizers encourage friends, families, and neighbors to attend together.

A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit five community organizations including the Indiana Farmers Union, Indiana Forest Alliance, Hoosier Organic Marketing Education (HOME), Garfield Park Farmers Market, and Indianapolis Parks Foundation.

“When I first stepped foot inside Garfield Park’s MacAllister Amphitheater, nearly 10 years ago, I wondered why this incredible space wasn’t hosting a great music festival,” said Josh Baker, Holler On The Hill curator and founder. “I had this vision of a small but mighty gathering of die-hard working class music lovers eating, singing, drinking together in a laid back family reunion-like atmosphere. With music as the centerpiece, Holler On The Hill provides a much-needed stewardship opportunity to support two causes I’m extremely passionate about: local agriculture and conservation.”

Baker adds “At this intersection of concerts and farming, I wanted to invite my worlds to collide and unite in an event space that was always meant to belong to everyone. It’s our duty to give back and support the challenges facing our local family farms, the logging issues facing Indiana forests and the community groups that align with these ideals. I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to contribute to several underserved organizations and have a direct impact on the well-being of our state.”
