Night Lights Festival Announces Phase II Line-Up

The Night Lights Music Festival just released the second phase of its lineup: Eric Krasno Band, Jimkata, the Tins, Folkfaces, the London Souls, GNOSiS and Adam’s Acoustic Project.

These are great additions to an already notable lineup of Beats Antique, Moon Hooch and three sets of Buffalo’s Aqueous, who have been performing at the festival every year since 2012.

The Night Lights Music Festival, scheduled for Aug. 25 to 27 in Sherman, is designed to give festival-goers a sensory experience through the combination of music and lights, or more specifically “to stimulate the eyes, ears, heart and soul through MUSIC, LIGHTS and NATURE,” according to the fest’s website.

In the past, unique collaborations have taken place at the festival, and have included sets by bands like Snarky Puppy, Dopapod, Turkuaz and Consider the Source. Fans will not only be able to enjoy great music, but also the spectacularly lit-up forest that is a work of art in itself.


The festival will take place at the Great Blue Heron Grounds, which the website sites as “one of the headlining acts of the weekend,” with 200 acres of woodlands, hiking trails, pastures and farmland vistas. There will be a 7-acre pond for attendees to enjoy and swim in. The Blue Heron Grounds are 70 miles outside of Buffalo, 120 miles from Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Rochester and Toronto, and it’s about a nine-hour ride from Boston, Chicago and Charlotte.
