Since its founding in 2009, the Hamburg Music Festival has grown each year, to the point that now, some 20 venues in the general vicinity of Hamburg’s Memorial Park will take part in the festival Saturday.

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. Saturday, and will continue well into the evening, with regional bands and artists presenting a dizzying diversity of musical programming. A small cross-section of the festival’s performers includes Gruvology, the Grace Stumberg Band, Roy Hangen’s All-Star Revue, Jamie Holka, Blue Sift, the Rob Falgiano Band, Ronny Davis, the Scott Celani Band, Amanda Nagurney, Billy McEwen & the Soul Invaders, the Tommy Z Band, Crashfuse and the Ifs.

A $10 wristband gives you access to all 30 bands and artists and unlimited shuttle service between venues. Money raised by the sale of wrisptbands will be dispersed directly to Big Tree Volunteer Firemen, Hamburg Central School District, Special Spaces Buffalo, Union Pleasant Elementary School, and Warm the Children. You can purchase one, learn more about the organizations benefitted by the festival, and find a full schedule of artists and participating venues, through www.hamburgmusicfestival.com.
