Huntington University is gearing up for its second-annual Fandana Festival on Aug. 10-11. It will be a great show this year. We’re hoping to double our attendance from last year to 8,000!

Fandana Events:

More than 50 bands will take the stage on Aug. 10-11 at Huntington University’s second annual Fandana Festival. All events will be on campus. The address for the campus is 2303 College Ave., Huntington, IN.

This two-day music, art and film festival will feature Chris Tomlin, Sidewalk Prophets, Sevenglory, Manic Drive, Hyland, HU’s own Attaboy and Da Messenger on Friday, and Over The Rhine, Family Force 5, Blessed By A Broken Heart, Write This Down, Rocky Loves Emily, Jetty Rae, Red Umbrella, The Lost Colors and Lee Roessler on Saturday and many more. All schedules are subject to change.

(NOTE: Superchick was originally announced to play this year, but they have cancelled their show.)

Film Festival:
New this year is the Fandana Film Festival featuring multiple feature-length films, including the 2012 Academy Award nominated animation “A Cat in Paris” and the comedy film “Not That Funny.” Both of these films will screen multiple times during the festival weekend along with other festival submissions in the categories of narrative, documentary, animation and a special category for high school students. The film festival will also feature Q&A’s and film lectures. Films will be shown throughout the two-day festival, some multiple times.

Family Friendly Activities:
A 5K Fun Run and kid-friendly activities, including inflatables and hot air balloon rides, provide fun for the whole family. The first ever Forester/FCA 5K will take place at 8 a.m. Aug. 11 during Fandana. Registration begins at 7 a.m. at the Merillat Physical Education and Recreation Complex (MPERC). The course will be throughout the HU campus and side streets of Huntington. Cost to participate is $20 if you register by Aug. 4 and $25 after Aug. 4. A $5 donation from each registration will be given to FCA. Participants will receive a free T-shirt. Register online at www.huntington.edu/athletics.
