AudioFeed Festival, Central Illinois’ community & faith-driven, three-day live music and arts gathering, is proud to announce the return to The Champaign County Fairgrounds in Urbana IL, on July 1-3 after a two-year hiatus.

The final music lineup for AudioFeed Festival includes Pedro the Lion, Rosie Thomas, Flatfoot 56, Propaganda, Jay Joseph, Listener, Glenn Kaiser Band, Idle Threat, David Eugene Edwards of Wovenhand, and very special performances by legendary acts Randy Stonehill, Eric Clayton, The Huntingtons, and Undercover.

Tickets for AudioFeed Festival are now on sale.

AudioFeed follows the steps of the legendary Cornerstone Festival, which established itself in 1984 as an alternative gathering focused on the Jesus Music counterculture that sprung out in the late 60s/early 70s. Audiofeed began in 2013 in an effort to keep the core “family” of Cornerstone alive. Audiofeed is not Cornerstone, but it’s the same family, and carries a similar spirit.

“I’m so excited to be playing Audiofeed this year. This fest has been a family reunion and retreat for me for such a long time and getting to be there and play this year after a few years away will be a balm,” says singer-songwriter Kevin Schlereth.

“If doing the work of community with a group of people dedicated to that work appeals to you, I think you will find a home at AudioFeed.”

Skot Shaw, the lead singer and songwriter behind Alt Rock/Goth Leper says, “Leper cannot wait to play Audiofeed, partly because there are so many people we have not seen for the last 3 years or more, and anyone who’s ever seen Leper play knows it’s going to be about 50 percent concert, 50 percent worship service, and this year we’ve even got a few surprises.”

AudioFeed Festival will feature about 75 acts within 5 stages including the main stages (Radon and Black Sheep), which will host all the headliners, and the Sanctuary Stage which will have most metal and heavy acts, the Burningtown Stage, and the Front Porch, which offers impromptu slots for acts to perform open-mic style.

3-Day General Admission passes can be purchased online for only $70. AudioFeed Festival is also offering an Early Access deal for $80, which provides festival early entry on June 30th for extra shows and camping. RV Site camping passes are available for an extra $90. In addition, the single-day passes are $35 for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and $15 for Thursday only. Tickets will also be available at the gate.
