Idlewild MF

Once again, the Idlewild Music Festival will host regional, national and international performing music artists during the Festival’s weekend of events. This year’s Festival Executive Producer is Theresa Randleman, Founder and CEO of T. ROSE Entertainment, Inc. The Festival is held to commemorate and celebrate the history of well known African-American entertainers and professionals who owned property and performed at the Historic Resort prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Known as the “Black Eden”, this location was one of the few resorts in the United States where African-Americans could vacation and purchase property. The National Resource Team applauds the Idlewild community for holding on to the land; approximately 3,000 acres. It is historically, the largest land based African American resort ever assembled in the USA. Idlewild is a rare and valuable national resource with physical and cultural significance.

The weekend of entertainment will bring Jazz, Blues, Soul and Gospel to Idlewild, Michigan; from youth talent to legendary music icons. The Saturday night headline artist is Zapp Band; and the Sunday morning Gospel Celebration will include the Multi-Stellar Award Winning Bishop Rance Allen and the Rance Allen Group.

Save the dates and plan to join the dynamic hosts from Detroit radio; Mason and Coco!!! They will Honor the Past, while Standing in the Present, Looking towards the future. Visit the Idlewild Music Festival website for more information, artists lineup, weekend ends and more!
