The Excellency Music Festival returns with their third annual happening scheduled to take place at the Historic Masonic Temple in Bay City.  Nineteen nationally recognized and local artists are set to take the stage to perform alternative music at the festival on August 4, 2018. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at xlncmusicfest.com.

Headlining the festival are the bands: Tiny Moving Parts, Hot Mulligan, Forest Green, and Belmont. Tiny Moving Parts are a ‘math rock band’ from Benson, Minn. who has put out their fourth record  entitled ‘Swell’ in 2018.   Math rock is a style of indie rock that emerged in the late 1980s in the United States, influenced by post-hardcore, progressive rock bands such as King Crimson, and 20th century minimal music composers such as Steve Reich. Math rock is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), counterpoint, odd time signatures, angular melodies, and extended, often dissonant, chords.

Hot Mulligan stems from Michigan’s upper peninsula and released their first full length pop punk album ‘Pilot’ in March of 2018. Forest Green hails from Saginaw, Mich. and is set to release a new rock EP during summer 2018 prior to the festival. Belmont is a five-piece pop punk band from Chicago, Ill.

Other bands on the bill include: A Year In New York, Baggage, Dalinian, Greet Death, Hail Your Highness, If Only If Only, Kuzco’s Poison, Last Night Saved My Life, Rounding Third, Silver Age, The Thoughtlife, The White Oranges, Undesirable People, Valley Girl, and Vital Sea. 

The festival kicks off at 11:30 a.m. where all ages are welcome to attend. Available at the festival will be food, drinks, local vendors and a full-service bar.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 or the day of the festival at the door for $20.
