What was once run in our community soccer fields, with camping spanning across local farmers’ fields - is now hosted on our very own festival grounds in the heart of Lucknow. Graceland Festival Grounds, an ode to the former owner Grace Hopf, has allowed us to grow our small but mighty festival into what it is today. The event has grown from 1200 patrons in 2009 to upwards of 8000 in recent years, which literally octuples (8x) Lucknow’s population!
With the support of local businesses, service clubs, residents, and volunteers - our festival has developed from a Kinsmen event into a community event. Its success is built upon the cooperative and supportive nature of our county, with over 600 volunteers helping run our event every year. From scanning tickets and directing cars, to the planning committee and clean up crew - everyone involved is helping for the sake of their community. We are very grateful for those who donate their time to make Lucknow’s Music in the Fields everything that it is!
We continue to the raise the bar to enhance our festival and camping experience every year. From expanding our grounds, bringing in new artists and genres, and even allowing campers to choose their own spots - we always do our best to improve each year. We strive to bring a fun and safe environment for our attendees, offering alternative layaway arrangements, shuttles to town, food & drink, merchandise, as well as a fantastic atmosphere!
We are very excited that the festival is now an anticipated annual event and we look forward to the opportunity of hosting you in the fields for the last party of the summer! Join us in celebrating our second decade of Lucknow’s Music in the Fields!
