Coming to the Pines in August

2 Nights of Dark Star Orchestra!

Did you enjoy your time at the Pines Music Park and want to come back before next year’s festival? Join us August 19th & 20th for Dark Star Orchestra’s only Midwest tour stop this summer! Dark Star Orchestra will be joined by openers The Kyle Tuttle Band on Friday and The People Brothers Band on Saturday.

Visit the Pines Music Park Website for more details!


Performing to critical acclaim for over 20 years and over 3000 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead live concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead’s extensive catalog and the talent of these seven fine musicians. On any given night, the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show.

All tickets include unreserved tent camping and parking for your car next to your tent or in our parking lot. Carry-ins are welcome in both the campgrounds and music area for this easy-going weekend.

A reserved campsite is required for those who would like to camp in an RV or would like to arrive to a specific spot for tent camping. Reserved Electric and Non-Electric sites are located around the perimeter of the music bowl with some sites featuring unobstructed views of the stage since there is no fence between camping and the concert bowl. Imagine watching full sets of music from the comfort of your own campsite!

  • 4 sets by Dark Star Orchestra with opening acts by The Kyle Tuttle Band (Friday) and The People Brothers Band (Saturday)
  • 3 nights of unreserved tent camping
  • Parking next to your tent OR in our daily parking lot
  • Carry-ins welcome in both the concert bowl and campground for this easy going weekend.
