We’re taking pre-orders now for the 2019 edition of the Local Spins calendar with spectacular concert images, Michigan festival dates and more: A perfect, unique holiday gift.
It’s a calendar on steroids.
Support our coverage of
West Michigan's music scene
The 2019 Local Spins Calendar is bigger and better than ever, showcasing 30 local and regional acts in resplendent concert photos by Local Spins photographers, and listing more than 80 Michigan music festivals.
It’s a beautiful way to show your love of Michigan’s music scene and mark the days in 2019, while keeping track of all those star-studded festivals across the state.
Sponsored by Stella’s Lounge in Grand Rapids, there’s literally nothing else like it anywhere, making it the perfect holiday gift for all the music lovers, musicians, festivalgoers and Michiganders on your shopping list, and you can pre-order it online now in the Local Spins gift shop here.
We’ve expanded the calendar but the price remains the same: $15. And as always, a portion of sale proceeds will be donated to Access of West Michigan, which operates anti-poverty programs and coordinates food pantries for needy families in the Grand Rapids area.
This year’s calendar boasts striking photos of emerging and well-known regional acts – from The B-Side Growlers to Last Gasp Collective to The Zannies – as well as a new page showcasing West Michigan music icons, including Jimmie Stagger, Ralston Bowles, Organissimo, John Gist, Wayland and Mark Swanson.
BONUS FOR EARLY BUYERS, PLUS A QUESTION: WHAT MAKES A MUSIC FESTIVAL?
Act quickly, because we produce only a limited quantity of these stunning calendars and they sell quickly. Orders yours today online here. As a bonus for jumping in early: The first 25 orders will receive a free Local Spins pin, guitar pick and sticker. Calendars are expected to be available for shipping by Thanksgiving.
And while you’re at it, Local Spins poses this question to our readers:
What makes a music festival? Is one day enough or should a festival be more? To be a “festival,” does the event have to have more than one stage? How many bands? Is outdoors a requirement? With camping? Or would you consider indoor festivals, too? What about festivals that focus on food, beverages or visual art but happen to have live music?
Tell us what you think.
And while our print deadline has passed, if you haven’t yet contacted us about your 2019 festival, there’s still time to be part of our online Big List Of Michigan Music Festivals on the Local Spins website. Message us on Facebook with your confirmed 2019 dates or email firstname.lastname@example.org. And sign up for Local Spins email updates here so you never miss a post.
