The Easter Island Music Festival, hosted by Tulsa based band The Moai Broadcast, is a grassroots music & camping festival that happens in April each year to celebrate the birth of Spring out of Winter. It is a gathering of art, music and culture to celebrate human thought & expression. This year the festival takes place April 10th, 11th & 12th of 2014 at Valley Park Sports Complex located in Keetonville, OK.
Throughout the years, the festival has grown in intimacy and in size. A place of refuge from the outside world, the festival hopes to provide a comfortable environment for all guests attending. Musicians, Artists, & Attendees are all one at the festival, sharing a symbiotic relationship which transcends any conventional show.
30+ bands will perform at two staged tents. Also showcased at this year’s festival will be a variety of workshops and art installations. Through camping, music, art installations and a beautiful spread of land - our patrons are sure to have a great experience full of camaraderie and community along with new friendships forged.
Valley Park Sports Complex features expanded views, orchards, streaming creeks & rivers and is nestled within rolling hills. Just outside of the city on gorgeous private land, Valley Park offers the unique opportunity to showcase music until sunrise. Located just north of Tulsa in Keetonville, Valley Park is the perfect location to host Easter Island Festival because it gives patrons the option to either stay and camp or return to Tulsa for the night!
ABOUT THE BANDS
We're very excited about this years line-up. Easter Island Music Festival's main goal is to showcase local talent because we believe our organic music scene in Oklahoma has been developing into something pretty unique and special. Our second goal is to headline emerging regional artists with the hopes to expose them to the avid music lovers and supporters of Oklahoma's continually growing music and art scene.
