For the sixth consecutive year, MoonRunners Music Festival will make its return to Reggie’s in Chicago for a two day event being held May 4 and 5, 2018. Featuring two rooms and two stages, MoonRunners has become the not-to-miss event of the spring. This year’s event will be no different as MoonRunners Music Festival has officially announced one half of the 2018 lineup!
|Days N Daze|
Houston folk punk heroes, Days N Daze, will be making their MoonRunners fest debut. The band is arguably the most popular folk-punk band at the moment and their popularity just keeps getting bigger. Fresh off the release of their latest album, “Crustfall,” Days N Daze will bring a new shift to the MoonRunners Music Festival lineup.
Indianapolis’ Harley Poe will also be making their festival debut and will perform their only show of 2018 at MoonRunners Music Festival.
|Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band|
Rounding out the announced headliners are a reunited Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band and Canada’s The Dead South.
The undercard for the 2018 installment of MoonRunners sees a lot of new faces as well as some returning favorites. Artists such as Those Poor Bastards, The Urban Pioneers, James Hunnicutt, Barnyard Stompers, CW Ayon, Brittany Avery, Pearls Mahone, Izzy and the Catostrophics, Molly Gene One Whoaman Band, Won’t Stay Dead, Curio, and Lonewolf OMB will all be making repeat performances, while fresh new comers Freight Train Rabbit Killer, Darci Carlson, Dead Eye Zack, Saint Christopher Webster, Terri Lynn and the Darling Daughters, Swamp Rats, and Cash O’Riley round out the first wave of announced acts.
MoonRunners promises 20 more acts to be announced including additional headliners. This announcement will come around Christmas time.
Tickets will be $80 when all the acts have been announced, but can be purchased for only $65 until then!
