Music Maker Productions is presenting the Old Main Music Festival April 5 at the Mississippi State Amphitheater on the university's Starkville campus.
Old Main Music Festival begins at 3 p.m. and includes both local and national musicians, outdoor games and activities, an art market and food vendors. Local music acts, the Art Market and food trucks open at 3 p.m., and the Main Stage kicks off at 7 p.m. with Dirty Streets and Duncan Fellows. Headliner Lewis Del Mar concludes the festival.
Lewis Del Mar is a New York-based indie pop duo made up of Washington D.C.'s Danny Miller and Max Harwood. Named after the two musician's fathers' shared name "Lewis," the band combines acoustic guitars, percussions and mixed media samples to create an experimental sound. The duo's 2015 debut single "Loud(y)" caught the attention of many with its electrifying jolts of melodies. Lewis Del Mar's 2016 debut self-titled album paved the way for a large-scale world tour.
Duncan Fellows is an indie rock quintet from Austin, Texas. After the release of two independent EPs, Duncan Fellows set off on tour with Houndmouth, giving the band immense notoriety across the U.S. The group's 2017 debut LP titled "Both Sides of the Ceiling" made way for a new musical impression of the band with a fresh sound, including Spotify's "Feel Good Indie Rock" playlist with more than 1 million followers.
Dirty Streets, a Memphis, Tennessee-based three-member rock ensemble, draws influence for its sound from the "Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll." Dirty Streets' latest LP titled "Distractions" features psychedelic rock music with a heavy, soulful sound.
