Where else can you find zombies, artists, over 100 bands, dancers, food trucks, poets, exhibits, a Kid’s Village and fireworks other than Music is Art? That’s right… nowhere!
To date, MiA has become one of the most resilient, most expansive, most enduring and most talent-filled festivals in the region. For years, this event has managed to raise young musicians up on a pedestal, while paying tribute to the tried and true music acts that have graced this city for years.
Festival highlights include Buffalo’s own Cute is What We Aim For and Green Jello plus live art by the legendary Phillip Burke.
On Saturday, September 10, starting at 10 am, Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls will be hosting The 14th Annual MiA Festival at Delaware Park.
Featured acts include:
- Pinky Doodle Poodle from Japan
- Denny Laine of Wings
- Mike Peters of the Alarm
- Chris Anton of Information Society

This year, the Rupp Family Foundation has provided funds, which will allow MiA to operate in additional circles. The funding will ensure that the 2016-17 Music Industry Academy workshops are free of charge. The all-ages workshops vary in nature – past topics include Music Law Basics, Marketing and Promotions, Artist Management, Booking Gigs and Touring. The funds are also being applied to the 2016 Battle of the Business Bands – an event that encourages corporate team building. Corporate sponsors will team up with bands competing for the spotlight on stage. Winners will be judged by audience appeal and a panel of celebrity judges.
