Mid Week Address
Hi Main Streeters,
Due to popular demand we are adding a few new venues in order to squeeze a couple more groups into the festival. We want to welcome Folklore and The Magnet to the festival. Look for those schedule releases to drop in the next few days.
Speaking of things that are about to drop....We are only two days away from the launch of our schedule and smartphone app.
Wristbands will be available at select downtown business locations in the next few days. Look for those locations on our "Wristban
There are a lot of things to do in only 14 days but all the hard work of the team will pay off as fun for music fans. The team has a big meeting tonight and we are hitting the promotion hard. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering for the festival.

Artists are color coded to define their genre and it's amazing just how many different genres that we feature.

Last weekend came and went so fast. We already had our first pre-party and it was fun. The Beermuffs rocked Legends Sports Bar & Grill in the HOT Summer sun all afternoon long last Saturday. This Saturday (July 13) features a pre-party with DJ Lock-IN and DJ G-Spot at Oblio's. Stop down for music starting at 9pm and get your festival wristbands all night long.
Flyers are set to hit Main Street and handbills will come in seven days. The promo rush is upon us so look for our presence everywhere.
The biggest thing that we wanted to do with the festival is provide the city with over 100 different performing artists.
Today is a great day because we have officially broken the 100 artist mark. To make this news even better it looks like we may even hit a number of over 120 when the dust settles.
The count is officially at 103 artists and rising. Watch the videos on the homepage and continue to get excited for the fun!

It's been awhile since I last updated the Daily Activity and it's time to touch base with all you eager followers. Thanks for being so supportive of the festival and checking the website out on a regular basis.
The festival has completed all the band bookings and we want to thank all the incredible talent that submitted this year. If we didn't get you in the festival this year we will make sure that you get a chance to be a part next year. Thanks again for you overwhelming interest the festival.
We are in the process of uploading the schedule into an App that can be downloaded on your phone. The App will allow you to view the schedule in a manner that is friendly on the eyes so you know which way to direct your ears. The App will provide information on the performing artists and feature their genre in a color coded manner.
A special shout out to Satori Imports for stepping up and incorporating the music festival into their monthly shirts. Their August T-Shirts will feature a musical theme dedicated to Oshkosh Main Street Music Festival. The festival team will also have T-Shirts available during the event that features the performers.
The festival team will offer limited edition prints by artist Matt Braun during the event. That now makes a total of four different ways in which to look stylish. Two of them are T-Shirts and Wristbands for your body and one is original artwork for your wall.
Look for the official posters around town in the next week and get ready for the fun!
Thanks for the support,
One of the best parts of a music festival is the collaborations.
Look for Joe Jucius and Evergreen to join forces and pay tribute to Neil Young on the Becket's patio (Sat Aug 3). Joe is also playing an acoustic tribute to Neil Young at Ground Round on River's Edge the same night.
Joe Marcinek (from Fresh Hops) can be spotted with Phocus at Peabody's Ale House on Fri Aug 2. If you don't know who these two Joe's are you are in for one hell of a treat.
FVDJA is throwing down mix-up, mash-up and pure insanity on the mixers, tables and controllers just about every where you can hear a beat.
Look for more collaborations ALL weekend long.
