Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival Announces 2017 Daily Lineup

Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival announces daily lineup for the first annual Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival {pronounced ka-roon-din-ha} to take place on Friday, July 21, Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23, 2017, with a kick-off party on Thursday, July 20th at Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park, America’s only all-water cavern and wildlife park in Centre Hall, PA. Set on 1,600 unspoiled acres of rolling hills and rich farmland, the festival site, the largest in the northeast, boasts acres of sunflowers, world-class trout fishing, off-road tours, native North American wildlife, including mountain lions, wolves, bison, bears, longhorn cattle, bighorn sheep and more.

 

Taking a break from the hustle and bustle of urban America, festival-goers will enjoy an incomparable experience where they can take part in various amenities, including daily yoga sessions, dance workshops, art installations, gourmet food vendors, multiple levels of camping options and all-water tour caves.

 

The Seneca Tribe aptly dubbed this land, Karoondinha, meaning The Land of Shining Waters. The three-day, multi-stage, camping festival will highlight over 80 artists, including Chance the Rapper, Odesza, John Legend, Paramore, Sturgill Simpson, The Roots, Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis, Young the Giant, Chromeo, Alessia Cara, Leon Bridges, X Ambassadors, The Revivalists, Daya, Maren Morris, Needtobreathe, MisterWives, Jon Bellion, AlunaGeorge, Marian Hill, Broods, DNCE, St. Lucia, Coin, PVRIS, Grace VanderWaal, and Jacob Collier. 

 

Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival was conceived by young entrepreneurs and brother-sister duo, Kaleena and Paul Rallis, who grew up in Central Pennsylvania working at their family’s business, Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park.  With a musical background and working in the entertainment industry for the past decade, the Rallis siblings want to bring their passion for music and the arts back home to create a major destination event, which the region lacked.  Karoondinha is set to take the festival experience to an elevated level of uniqueness and quality.

 

“We have assembled a team of experienced ‘festival’ professionals to help bring our vision to life,” said Kaleena and Paul Rallis. They continued, “Collectively, the team of 60+ full-time and hundreds more part-time has worked on some of the most successful and well-established music festivals in the country. They are all extremely dedicated to Karoondinha and are working together seamlessly to take the necessary steps to ensure every aspect, including logistics, staging, production, security, medical, traffic, guest services, food and beverage, are handled in the best ways possible.”
