Welcome to the home of the Kent ‘Round Town Music Festival!
The Festival started in 1966 as the Kent State Folk Festival and in recent years morphed into the Kent ‘Round Town Music Festival. Now produced by Crooked River Arts Council and Main Street Kent, Kent State University’s radio station WKSU remains intimately involved as the lead media sponsor.
Over the years the Festival has seen locals, Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Famers, pop culture luminaries, and counter culture icons put on their best performances for the City of Kent and visitors from all over the world.
We hope you enjoy this year’s lineup and thank you for being a part of the ever-evolving live music history in the storied tradition of Kent, OH.
