Celebrating 10 years of playing together, The Werks have put together one of their most exciting Werk Out Music & Arts Festival to date. Held at Legend Valley (just east of Columbus) on August 4-6, this seventh annual event features three nights of The Werks, along with STS9, Lettuce, two nights of Dopapod, two nights of Twiddle and many more.
The end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 was a very trying time for The Werks. They marked their 10th anniversary with the release their new album, Inside a Dream. They played one of the most talked about sets from Jam Cruise. Then tragedy struck. Only hours after they had left the stage on Jam Cruise, back at home founding keyboardist, Norman Dimitrouleas (brother of bassist, Dino) passed away in his sleep. This much tumult could be the end of many bands, but The Werks remain committed to their life’s work. Their music. Taking time to process the loss, Dino has announced a leave of absence from the band and will be replaced by SassafraZ’s Jake Goldberg.
2016’s initial lineup includes: The Werks (3 nights) STS9 (2 sets) Lettuce (Late Night) Dopapod (2 nights) Twiddle (2 nights) The Motet (Late Night) Zoogma Turkuaz The Mantras Broccoli Samurai Glostik Willy Tropidelic Sassafraz Mister F Cheezcake Higher Learning Litz and more to be announced
From headlining stages at the country’s biggest festivals, to selling out shows around the country, to running their own record label, 1320 RECORDS, pushing boundaries is all in a day’s work for instrumental electronic rock band STS9.
For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat.
Formerly known as Buckeye Lake Music Center, the sprawling festival grounds of Legend Valley have played host to some of Ohio’s most memorable live performances of the past five decades including half a dozen Grateful Dead concerts as well as tour stops from Lollapalooza, AC/DC, WOMAD, The Allman Brothers Band, and numerous other large events.
