The four-day event is being organized by HORDE festival founder David Frey and Peter Shapiro, the one-time owner famed New York City rock venue Wetlands Preserve.  The music extravaganza will feature fewer artists playing longer sets on two alternating stages, with no breaks in the music throughout the day.  Many of the performers are expected to play sets on multiple days during the festival, with artists encouraged to collaborate with each other on stage. 

The Interlocken Music Festival also will offer locally-sourced food and beverages, while the organizers will place a focus on keeping the festivities environmentally conscious.  Early bird general admission tickets and VIP packages will go on sale Thursday, May 23, at 10 a.m. ET.  Visit InterlockenFestival.com for more details.
