Full Line up for the Annual #LIVIN Festival is set. The music festival that is a fund raising event for the #LIVIN Foundation that works to prevent suicide is returning to ERX Motor Park in Elk River September 15th and 16th. Announced earlier were regional acts fromt he Midwest Country Organisation. Adam Brandt, Derek Jones, the Crow River Rebelion, Travis Thamert, Jake Nelson, Brad Morgan and Hailey James, will support national recording artists Drew Parker and DIAMOND RIO!!!! They were a HUGE 90s country band with 14 top 10 hits. Some of their biggest hits include,  “Meet in the Middle” “Love a Little Stronger” “How your love makes me feel” “One More Day” “Norma Jean Riley” “Unbelievable”… The list goes on and on.

The #LIVIN Festival is not the biggest music festival around, and that is by design. Paul Thomas the founder of #LIVIN and the host of Miswest Country Originals on B93.3 says, “I’ve said this before but we don’t want the LIVIN Music Festival to be the BIGGEST event around…we want it to be the MOST IMPACTFUL and we know it’s working when people say they’ve left the event feeling inspired to change or to LISTEN better, to be a better version of themselves, or just that they feel as though they have more HOPE for tomorrow…and we all know that HOPE is a powerful thing.  So again THANK YOU!!

Obviously we’ll also be back with the incredibly popular BBQ competition, cornhole, family activities, camping, etc…we will continue to try to add components where possible to make this weekend one that you’ll never want to miss…again thank you for making it possible!

Action Items for YOU:

  1. Mark the dates on your calendar Sept 15th and Sept 16th at ERX Motor Park!
  2. Get involved again in whatever capacity you are able to!  Sponsor, Volunteer, Cook in the BBQ competition, and most importantly…
