We’re Coming To Red Rocks!

Our Summer Tour is taking us all over the country, and it all culminates with our August 21st show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Greensky Bluegrass and Fruition!

Spend the evening immersed in the beauty of Red Rocks, dancing with thousands of Kinfok under the stars. And if you really want an unforgettable experience, check out our VIP package, including a tour of backstage and the legendary Red Rocks tunnel, early entry to the show to attend our sound check, a meet & greet cocktail hour with the band, plus special amenities including commemorative YMSB Red Rocks 2015 merchandise, private viewing area, and a whole lot more.

Hinterland Location Change

Hello Hinterlanders! Due to flooding concerns at Water Works Park, Hinterland Music Festival is moving locations to Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles, Iowa — just a short 26 minute jaunt from Des Moines, directly south via I-35.

Check out all the new details at hinterlandiowa.com/faq — all of the FAQs have been updated to reflect the changes for the new location — and if you still have questions, email realperson@hinterlandiowa.com.


Sirius XM Jam On

Here’s a video from our recent trip to SiriusXM Radio​ in New York City for Jam On’s Jam Files! From intimate acoustic sessions to unique electric performances, SiriusXM Jam_ON​ has tons of recordings from your favorite Jam_ON artists in their archives – and they’re sharing them with you!

Phases Of The Moon

It wouldn’t be Fall Festival season without an appearance on Mulberry Mountain! We have come so far the past few years, with the full-time addition of Allie Kral​ and Jacob Jolliff​ and a new album. With the release of “Black Sheep” we begin a new era, pushing the envelope into the realms of Rock n’ Roll and improv. The result is music that doesn’t stand still, it’s always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground.

Tickets available at phasesofthemoonfestival.com
