Hobart's Brickie Bowl to host country music festival

Hobart's Brickie Bowl will host the Hometown Country Jams Music Festival.

A new country music festival promises to bring a "national headliner" to Hobart's Brickie Bowl.

At least four acts, including a local Northwest Indiana band and a national act, will perform at the all-day festival called Hometown Country Jams at the locally famous former high school football field on Saturday, June 1 next year.

Hometown Country Jams organizer Tyrus Joseforsky is coordinating the event with the city.

"Well for the past couple months or so now, I’ve been very quiet but working extremely hard on this music festival," he said. "This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now but the timing or situation was just never right. Now I have a vision and see an opportunity to bring this community together for an event of a caliber Northwest Indiana has never seen before. So I started my company, Flight Levelz Entertainment, and I’m bringing Northwest Indiana’s largest country music festival to the Brickie Bowl in downtown Hobart next summer. I couldn’t be more excited to announce this event and bring a major scale music festival to this amazing community."

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Hobart Humane Society.

"We will be announcing our first phase of national touring country music artist in the coming months and tickets will go on sale later this year," Joseforsky said. "We’re turning things up a notch in the Region and I hope you're ready for it."
