Dawn and On Festival 2017

Dawn and On is a one-day festival held outside on the banks of the Rock River at the beautiful Len Brown's North Shore Inn & Marina in Moline, IL.. This is the Festival's third year, begun in 2015 as an all-local festival. It has grown to include regional touring bands, and is a very popular local fest.

In addition to to a full-day of music on the river, Dawn and On will feature local food and craft vendors, a full bar including local craft beer and surprises throughout the day.

The festival's 2017 lineup includes many favorite artists including Old Shoe, Chicago Farmer, Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts, Miles Over Mountains, J.E. Sunde and plenty more!

As per tradition, a Friday Night pre-party will also be held at Bent River Brewing Company in neighboring Rock Island, IL. This year's pre-party features Funk Odyssey, Still Shine, and Cycles.

A portion of every ticket sold to DAO2017 will benefit The Child Abuse Council of the Quad Cities.

Tickets will be $5 at the gate. Children 12 and Under are Free, and anyone under 21 is welcome until 8 PM. There will be kids' activities onsite.

Remember to bring sun block, seats (there is limited seating on the deck and picnic tables) and maybe an umbrella for shade. Leave your coolers at home, though.
