Indy is becoming quite the music festival destination. In addition to WonderRoad, which returned in June for its second year here, All IN Music and Arts Festival will be kicking off this weekend from Saturday, Sept. 9-Sunday, Sept. 10 at the State Fairgrounds.

Self-proclaimed as “the most convenient, easy, and comfortable festival in America,” All IN combines music, food trucks, a beer garden, and local art. It also includes “dreamsets” — live shows celebrating iconic music groups. This year, festivalgoers will have the chance to experience a Led Zeppelin dreamset on Saturday and The Beatles dreamset on Sunday.

Here for the headliners? Saturday features none other than Tenacious D, fronted by funnyman Jack Black, while Trey Anastasio (best known as the lead guitarist for Phish) & Classic Tab will take the stage on Sunday. Both performances will take place inside the air-conditioned Indiana Farmers Coliseum, so you won’t need to worry about inclement weather.

Greensky Bluegrass, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Cory Wong, and The Main Squeeze, along with a number of other bands, will also play sets at the festival. You can see the whole lineup here.

Don’t fall behind the beat — single day or two-day tickets are still available. Looking for more ways to listen to music or shop local art outdoors this year? Keep an eye out for our fall festival roundup coming next week.
