Howl At the Moon Indie Music Festival 2018!

The Howl at the Moon Indie Music Festival is the premier showcase of independent artists! It all started in 2017 with a rockin’ salute and countdown to the Great American Solar Eclipse and turned into a movement! This year’s festival will take place September 15th-16th, 2018 on the grounds of Two Rivers Mansion, 3130 McGavock Pike, Nashville, TN.  30 musical artists will perform from 2:00pm to 10:30pm on Saturday and 2pm to 8:30pm Sunday, and their performances will be broadcast globally throughout the weekend from the beautiful natural setting of the historic estate.  The 2018 Howl at the Moon Indie Music Festival promises to be another exciting event, with food, drink, and fun in a natural outdoor, rain or shine, communal type environment.  For more information email us at [email protected]
