The Prairie Magic Music Fest is a celebration of rock, bluegrass, folk and Americana music set right in the heart of a beautiful County Park just minutes from the expressway.

Los Lobos will be the 2019 Prairie Magic Music Festival headliner, Porter County Parks and Recreation announced this week. The Prairie Magic Music Festival, held each August at Sunset Hill Farm County Park, is a celebration of Rock, Blues, and Americana music. Working with long time Porter County Memorial Opera House collaborator Rob Harkel of Brightside Music, the department has grown the festival to attract high quality, national-headlining acts, alongside local favorites as opening acts. The department and Park Board work to increase the number of quality performances at the Sunset Hill Farm County Park amphitheater. This year’s headliner is sure to attract visitors from far beyond Porter County, though.

Originally from LA, Los Lobos’ music is a rock-and-roll, Tex-Mex blend. They first gained international fame in the late 1980’s with a cover of Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” and have been creating music for more than 40 years. The three-time Grammy award winning group has also received a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.

The Prairie Magic Music Festival is an annual celebration of Rock, Americana, and Blues music that takes place each August. Bring your lawn chairs and sun shades to enjoy an afternoon of amazing music at our outdoor amphitheater. Food trucks, bounce houses, a beer garden, and kids activities will be available all day! Doors open at 12:00 pm, and music will begin at 1:00 pm. Tickets are $30 in advance.

Porter County Parks & Recreation is also opening up the Sunset Hill Farm Campground for camping the night of the festival. Visitors can rent space in the campground for just $5.

 Water will be available on site at no cost, but coolers and outside food and beverages are not allowed. Hosted by Porter County Parks and Recreation, 219-465-3586.
