About the event
Sitting on the edge of the famed Horicon Marsh, the Jersey Street Music Festival began in 2013 and has rapidly grown to be one of the most unique and anticipated events in Wisconsin. In 2016 we are expanding our talent base to bring in artists from Massachusetts, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as a street art competition and many other events. The line-up we're putting together for our 2016 event (to be held over the 3rd weekend in June) includes (subject to change):
The Monday Specials (Milwaukee)
Archie Powell and The Exports (Chicago)
Brett Newski (Milwaukee)
Mad Polecats (Milwaukee)
The Suitcase Junket (Amherst, Mass.)
Me Like Bees (Springfield, MO)
Juiceboxxx (New York, NY)
The Crane Wives (Grand Rapids, MI)
It’s an incredible line-up and sure to draw crowds from all around the Midwest.
Up until this year, we've been funded entirely at the local level. With our branching out to bringing in artists on a National level, we're looking for Partners that can help us grow and sustain the event. For those businesses savvy enough to get on board now, our Festival will offer a tremendous marketing opportunity and value. This is a tremendous opportunity for our proud Wisconsin businesses to join together and help build one of the State’s premier events. We’re reaching out to you today because we believe that your business may not have been offered this sort of opportunity in the past.
What makes the Jersey Street Music Festival special?
· It's free to attend.
· It's managed by a team of dedicated and experienced music professionals and volunteers.
· It's in an ideal location, centrally located to Wisconsin's and the Midwest's major markets.
· It’s a uniquely and fiercely proud homegrown Wisconsin event that’ll have National exposure.

· The organization that underwrites the event (Horicon Phoenix Program) is a tax-exempt 501c3 organization and can be a vehicle for tax benefits.
From the onset, we choose a different route than most traditional music festivals. Instead of inviting cover bands to play for drunken masses, our festival features only original, aspiring bands in a free, arts-friendly environment. Our hope is to catch the next rising star early on, giving our festival-goers a chance to meet and mix with some of the best up-and-coming talent throughout the Midwest.
It’s a unique opportunity for your business to be a part of the next-big-thing. I'd look forward very much to the opportunity to discuss our Festival and many different marketing opportunities with you. Sponsorship packages range from $1,000.00 up to $25,000.00 and include a diverse media outreach campaign at all levels. Promotion begins immediately and will run through July of 2016.
Our success is your success, and we will work tirelessly to promote your brand in conjunction with the Jersey Street Music Festival.
