25 May Support WNKU & Get Tickets to This Weekend’s Nowhere Else Festival

On May 28th and 29th, Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler of Over the Rhine will host a two day music and art festival on their farm outside of Hillsboro, Ohio. The Nowhere Else Festival is curated entirely by Karin and Linford and will feature visual artists, naturalists, great food, and musical performances by Blind Boys of Alabama, Joe Henry, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Lily and Madeleine, Birds of Chicago, Katie Laur, Over the Rhine and the Band of Sweethearts, and more.

Karin & Linford have generously donated 20 pair of festival passes to WNKU to be offered as thank you gifts to listeners who become WNKU members at $30 a month or make a one-time donation of $360.

Donate via our secure online pledge form, and select two tickets to the Nowhere Else Festival as your thank you gift.  You will receive a confirmation email once you’ve made your pledge and then a follow up email with more details about the festival one week prior to the event.
