First annual Fandana Festival coming to HU

Posted: Friday, July 22, 2011

Huntington University’s Fandana Festival is only a few short weeks away. More than 30 bands, including Switchfoot, Sidewalk Prophets, Photoside Cafe, BarlowGirl, Stellar Kart, Josh Wilson, SevenGlory, Hyland, Red Umbrella, Attaboy and Me in Motion, will play on multiple stages around campus during the three-day event.

The fun starts on August 11 with bands and events carrying through August 12. On August 13, stick around for a praise and worship service. The festival will also feature an indie band competition, seminars, an indie film component and kid-friendly activities including inflatable games.

“Huntington University is very enthused about hosting the only multi-day Christian music and arts festival in the state of Indiana. The Fandana Festival is also one of the only music and arts events in the nation to be held completely on a college campus,” said Jeff Berggren, HU’s senior vice president for enrollment management and marketing. “This is an opportunity to welcome our regional friends for a fantastic family and teen group experience.”

Overnight lodging is also available in residence halls for individuals or groups. Meal plans and individual meals are also available.

Tickets are $19 in advance or $25 at the gate for all three days. HU students are $5, children ages 6-10 are $5 and children 5 and younger are free. Groups of 15 or more are $15. Special rates are available for HU faculty and staff. Tickets are on sale now at

“The Fandana Festival is a great ministry opportunity for HU and we look forward to watching the event grow over the next several years,” Berggren said.
