The winners in each fcategory will receive trophies, thanks to LaHartz.

This year, the festival will include 17 acts, with a total of 27 performances. Half of the performers are local, offering audiences the opportunity to experience up and coming talent from right here in Fort Wayne. This year will also include acts from other cities in Indiana, Chicago, Virginia, Kentucky, and even Georgia.
