Staff Report

FREEPORT, Ill. — Tonic, Los Lonely Boys, Filter, Everclear, BoDeans and Chevelle will be among the headliners of more than 40 bands at Freeport’s Aug. 19-21 Spirit of Peace and Music Festival.

The festival will be at Stephenson County Fairgrounds, 2250 S. Walnut Road, Freeport. Admission is $55 for a weekend pass, $35 for Saturday only and $25 for Sunday only. Gates open at 4 p.m., Friday, and 10 a.m., Saturday and Sunday. Visit to order tickets and for more details.

The Spirit of Peace and Music Festival was created by a grassroots movement to provide for the next generation of artists from all disciplines. Fifty percent of profits will be donated to a fund that will provide both seed money toward a not-for-profit program for young artists and support toward making the festival an annual fund-raising event.

The purpose of the not-for-profit will be to encourage young adults to turn toward music and the arts. The grassroots movement hopes to open several studios throughout the country, especially in those areas most affected by economic depression to help youth, both developmentally and professionally, to rediscover the magic of art and the importance of education.
