The Dawg Daze of Summer Festival began in 2011 about 45 minutes from downtown Kansas City, MO featuring bluegrass, blues, rock and jazz style regional bands with a heavy focus on bluegrass and a hillbilly theme. It was at this festival that "The Roving Hillbilly Radio™" or simply "The Hillbilly Radio™" was created by one of the producers who drove a random assortment of musicians around the campground on a golf cart which quickly grew to the bed of a pickup truck. "We got ourselves our own Hillbilly Radio", she said. And a new tradition was born and named. That year featured a troupe of actors who traversed the grounds throughout the weekend and played the part of T-Bone Boone and his Hillbilly Hell Raisers. The weekend was filled with great music and the laughs of some very happy festival goers. Musical acts included: The HillBenders, SHEL, Mountain Sprout, Spoonfed Tribe, Brother Bagman, and many more. In 2012 the festival returned with The Dirty Dawgz featuring Michael Kang of The String Cheese Incident, Steve Molitz and Eric Gould of Particle and Brandon Draper of Quixotic on Saturday night. JJ Grey & MOFRO headlined Friday night and Dirtfoot headed up the Thursday entertainment with weekend support from Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Spoonfed Tribe, Brother Bagman, The Ben Miller Band, Nicolette Paige, Deep Fried Squirrel, Don't Stop Please and many more. In 2013 the festival took a break due to various challenges but, due to many requests, popular demand and determination, is now back for July 10-12, 2014 in a new location under the umbrella of a new production company, Skinny Fat Guy Productions, LLC, with renewed energy and a return to it's bluegrass roots! The new location, Ol' MacDonald's Farm, will host a 13,000+sqft arena in which there will be two stages - yes, two stages. One larger stage at the North end and one smaller stage at the South end. The two stages will host hour long sets in a back to back fashion creating a non-stop musical experience without overlapping sets. Festival goers won't miss a beat having the opportunity will hear every band playing at the festival in it's entirety. Ol' MacDonald's Farm was acquired by new owners in the fall of 2011 and is in it's developmental stage as they turn this beautiful farm into a great camping destination and event center. Looking for a festival to grow with them year after year, the owners are excited to host The Dawg Daze of Summer Festival along with other music and camping events as well as corporate events, weddings and rodeos.
