24-7 Entertainment Release:

24-7 Entertainment is thrilled to announce the return of The Shindig Music Festival to Carroll Park in Baltimore, MD on Saturday, September 27, 2014.

This year’s two main stages will be anchored by alternative rock legends JANE’S ADDICTION and punk rock favorite’s RISE AGAINST. Adding to the eclectic festivities will be Gogol BordelloClutchFishboneHalestormLuceroJ Roddy Walston & The BusinessLarry and His FlaskThe MahonesThe BotsCharm City DevilsBad Seed Rising and a local artist TBA.

A “Shindig” is defined as “a large, lively party celebrating something”. In this case, the “something” is an independent DIY Rock & Roll spirit and work ethic that make up the very core of the city of Baltimore. This year’s lineup is as fun and diverse as the neighborhoods and people of Charm City.

The Vending Village in The Woods includes a diverse offering of Baltimore’s best and familiar food and beverage options with plenty of seating and shade available. The Woods is also home to the Ripley’s “Believe it or Not” Side Stage featuring an array of rare talent including sword swallowers, fire breathers, aerial acrobats, burlesque performances and other visually captivating oddities.

Curated by longtime MD independent concert promoter, Paul Manna at 24-7 Entertainment, says “I was born and raised in Baltimore and creating a festival and vibe we’ve never seen was my goal. As a fan of every artist playing, I am confident thousands of live music lovers will truly appreciate this lineup as much as I do. Seeing Perry Farrell and Jane’s Addiction, one of my all-time favorite bands, perform in Pigtown will certainly be the icing on the cake.”

Last year was The Shindig’s successful inaugural year which featured Dropkick MurphysJoan Jett and The BlackheartsThe Gaslight AnthemClutchThe Mighty Mighty BosstonesReverend Horton HeatThe Hold SteadyJimmie’s Chicken ShackThe Glenmont Popesand more. Ben Hyman, Director of Pigtown Main Street says, “The Shindig showcased our historic neighborhood to the most people ever gathered for an event in Pigtown or Carroll Park – without any incidents or arrests. They are yet another example of our investment in Pigtown, including the opening of nine new businesses and hundreds of thousands of dollars in economic development.”

Carroll Park is located 1/2 mile from Camden Yards, M&T Bank Stadium, I-95, and I-395 in the heart of Baltimore’s historic Pigtown.
To eliminate any parking concerns, 24-7 Entertainment has reserved several large, secured parking lots that border the festival grounds.

The Shindig is proud to welcome festival lovers from all over the Mid-Atlantic region to our beloved hometown of Baltimore, MD for another year of great music and memories.
