Davenport gets into a jam
July 13, 2012 by Mark
The Heartland Jam Music Festival is a dream realized for Loren Arp. He conceptualized this festival in 2007 as an annual event. Three years later, Loren was involved in a massive explosion which left him severely burned and in the University of Iowa’s burn unit, where he died 40 days later. Since then, this festival has occurred each year and features several performers on three separate stages.
This year’s festival will take in a number of great performing musicians and bans including Danielle Peck, Big and Rich, Phil Vassar, Justin Moore, and many others. For a performance schedule, please visit the festival website.
Featuring some of the greatest entertainers, as well as eight national touring groups, a portion of the net proceeds raised by this event will go to the Loren Arp Memorial Foundation. The foundation assists families by enabling them to focus on treatment and rehabilitation, instead of the expenses that occur daily while being in the burn unit.
Flyer printing and poster printing may have been used to promote this festival to the families in Davenport and surrounding area. A two-day pass to this event costs $75 per person, although there are single day passes available as well. For more information about this festival, please visit the Heartland Jam Music Festival website. Please note that tickets are non-refundable if the event is cancelled due to weather conditions.
