For its 16th annual music and camping event, All Good Festival will find a new home in Thornville, OH.
July 19-22 nearly 50 bands and hundreds of music lovers will gather for a weekend for a diverse blend of rock, bluegrass, funk, electronica, hip-hop and unforgettable memories.
All Good will take place at the Legend Valley Concert Venue and Campground in Thornville, OH, located 30 minutes east of Columbus, OH. The campground, formerly known as the Buckeye Music and Lake Center, has hosted several notable Grateful Dead performances. Apart from numerous other reasons, the venue was chosen for its access to better roads and a shorter entry wait time for campers.
Julie Ellis, Huntington resident, has been to All Good the last five years and says that the festival is more than just music it is a community too.
“There is such a sense of unity among the festival goers that you don’t get at bigger festivals,” Ellis said. “We are all there to see the same kind of music and there is definitely a sense of unity that goes along with that.”
Ellis said in her past years as an All Good attendee she has noticed a wide range of people attending the festival.
“It’s definitely a different kind of people that have been faithful to their favorite bands and seeing this kind of music for a while,” Ellis said. “There are a lot of older people at the festival, but a couple of younger ones too. It’s definitely a more distinct crowd.”
This year All Good will hosts bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, The Flaming Lips, Michael Franti, Lotus, Dark Star Orchestra, Big Gigantic and many more.
Unlike other major music festivals, All Good does not make its attendees choose between acts. Housing two side-by-side main stages, none of the scheduled concerts overlap, allowing festival goers access to every show so they don’t miss a thing.
Tickets are still available at www.allgoodfestival.com/tickets as well as VIP packages that include exclusive concert viewing and camping close to the main stages along with numerous other benefits.
