Today the All IN Music & Arts Festival in Indianapolis announced additional artists as part of its 2023 lineup, including newly added headliner Tenacious D. See their specially made announcement video for Indy here.

Jack Black and Kyle Gass make up the Greatest Band in the World: Tenacious D. This Grammy winning band is known for  hilarious and hard rocking live performances that blend comedy, top notch musicianship, vocal harmonies and amazing songs. In 2021 and 2022, the duo released a series of cover songs,putting their own spin on The Beatles, The Who and others. Tenacious D continues to sell out massive shows across the world, which should come as no surprise for the Greatest Band That Ever Played on Planet Earth.  For more information on Tenacious D, visit: tenaciousd.com/

“We are creating a new experience, a true music festival that celebrates artistry and musicianship in an optimal environment for both performers and fans with a level of comfort for all that is rarely seen at live events. Our goal is to create unparalleled connection, discovery  and celebration with a world class cultural event in the Midwest,” said ALL IN co-founder Paul Peck.

In addition to Tenacious D, ALL IN has also added Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and young guitar virtuoso Quinn Sullivan to its already stellar 2023 lineup. Karl Denson is a beloved artist who is currently also a touring member of The Rolling Stones. The event, in its second year, will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, Sept. 10. The festival made its triumphant debut in 2022 and is known for its intimate capacity and comfortable amenities that allow for a truly special experience for attendees, with an emphasis on dazzling performers. The 2023 lineup includes Trey Anastasio & Classic TAB, Tenacious D (featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass), Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Umphrey’s McGee including a Led Zeppelin Dreamset featuring Jason Bonham, Greensky Bluegrass, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Cory Wong, Andy Frasco and The U.N., The Main Squeeze, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Neighbor, Eggy, Karina Rykman, Quinn Sullivan, and Hyryder. With  Phish not playing Indy this year ALL IN is Trey Anastasio’s only announced Indiana performance of 2023.  ALL IN will mark the first time Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has ever played the market. All IN will also continue its beloved signature tradition of exclusive live collaborations known as Dreamsets. The 2023 event will feature Dreamsets that celebrate the music of both Led Zeppelin and The Beatles as a nod to their historic appearance at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

This year All IN is truly unique, and boutique, with a very limited capacity for more than 7,200 festivalgoers. All headline performances will take place inside the air-conditioned Indiana Farmers Coliseum, which all but eliminates the chance of rain interruption. The setup features GA seats in the stands, and standing room access on the floor for all attendees. The outdoor Main Street Stage will have bleacher seating and standing room available. All IN offers the best of both worlds with the epic arena rock feel inside the coliseum and a great outdoor experience that allows two different environments, a major rarity for a multi-artist festival event.

The All IN location at the Indiana State Fairgrounds affords amenities not available at other festivals, including both an indoor and outdoor stage, easy entry and access for parking, comfortable seating and ample clean permanent restroom facilities for all attendees – no porta-potties and no need to wait in long lines. All IN also offers free water refill stations.

The Indiana State Fairgrounds and Event Center is located in the heart of Indianapolis between downtown, Broad Ripple and Indy’s bustling northside. The two-day event will once again combine elements of Hoosier culture and reflect Indiana’s extraordinary hospitality and diversity where you can enjoy great food & drink and world class music. All IN will feature a wide selection of premium, local food and beverages, a giant beer garden with local craft breweries, beer stations, cocktail bars, and the refreshing All IN Signature Cocktail.

The festival connects artists and fans through shared moments of inspiration and is proud to present a showcase of musicians that champion positivity and connection. In addition to All IN’s formidable headliners, there are other exceptional artists, all performing on two stages.Image

A unique feature that makes this festival stand out from all others are the All IN Dreamsets, which are epic celebrations of iconic songs featuring world class artists, very special guests and surprises. The festival’s 2023 Led Zeppelin Dreamset will feature Umphrey’s McGee performing with Jason Bonham and others. The Beatles Dreamset will celebrate history by recreating the full setlist from The Beatles performance at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 1964 and more.

Dreamsets are the once-in-a-lifetime musical experiences  that  festival dreams are made of. These sets are a major focus and the All IN team works closely with the artists to create something wildly ambitious with the aim of making musical history. The Dreamsets are produced by Paul Peck who is known for his famous Bonnaroo Superjams and his PoWows at the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. Peck also helped launch Outside Lands and Bonnaroo and along with Sybesma co-founded Okeechobee.
