A group of Mormon musicians and artists is hosting a new, inclusive, family-friendly music and arts festival on April 20-21 at the Wilson County Fairgrounds. Named Liahonaroo, the event will bring together artists and musicians from across the U.S. of all faiths to showcase their work in an outdoor festival setting.
Although the event is being created and coordinated by people who happen to be Mormon, Liahonaroo is not a “Mormon music festival.” It will welcome artists of all genres and faiths, although the event will be drug- and alcohol-free, and music performed must be appropriate for listeners of all ages (i.e., no profanity, etc.)
Musician and artist auditions are open until February 18. To apply, visit Liahonaroo.com/artists. Approximately 30 artists will be selected to perform at the two-day festival. While artists are asked to sell 10 tickets to the event as part of an artist agreement, they will receive 50 percent of the ticket sales as payment for their performance.
