Fawkesfest combines 50 plus bands, 4 venues for 2-day rock concert

Rock on!

More than 50 bands and four stages are set to fill downtown Cape Girardeau with pop, rock and alternative music for two days.

Fawkesfest 2019 will kick-off on Friday, Aug. 30 at 5:30 p.m. The live music will continue on Saturday, Aug. 31 starting at 3 p.m.

The multi-venue rockfest will feature Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Lucero, Isabella, Hard Loss, Discrepancies and much more.

Rock out at Shakers, The Library, Blue Diamond and Rude Dog Pub. The downtown venues are banding together to host all of the live music.

Different bands will perform at each place.

Fawkesfest is the brainchild of Fawkes Entertainment owner Justin Aden.

The idea is to bring bands together to fill downtown Cape Girardeau with as much live music as possible, all while supporting the community.

Half of the proceeds from Fawkesfest 2019 will go to Safehouse for Women and the Honorable Young Men’s Club.
