This exclusive, all-ages Mendel Center event features live music from three headline bands, Michigan craft beers and wine, mouth-watering variety from the area’s best food trucks, and wares from local artisans – all at INDIE FEST 18!

As seen on PBS, SWITCHBACK’s music is energetic, soulful, and versatile, combining elements of Americana-country, rock, and Celtic. Music Connection Magazine said: "The words ‘American Roots & Celtic Soul’ only begin to describe this unusual act, whose vocal prowess is as pure as it is unique. There is no denying the stunning vocal blends that are achieved by this duo."

The Accidentals
THE ACCIDENTALS have affirmed their place among contemporary music’s most original and adventurous new bands. This Michigan-based band has crafted a genre all their own, fueled by their uniquely limitless approach to musicality and songcraft. “Musically, their songs sift together folk, bluegrass, alt-rock, and even classical music.” 10 Artists to Watch in 2017 – Yahoo Music

The Hunts
Known for their harmony-laced take on alt-folk, THE HUNTS are seven siblings from Chesapeake Virginia, who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. That unified approach infuses their music with an irresistible richness of spirit. Their songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and undeniably dreamy innocence while capturing heartache and wonder with a wide-eyed but wistful elegance.
