Kankakee, IL – Nostalgia will resonate through the heart of Kankakee as the Merchant Street MusicFest gears up for its 2024 edition with a lineup steeped in 90s rock glory. 

Featuring iconic bands Vertical Horizon and Local H, the festival is primed to offer a throwback to the era when guitar riffs and anthemic choruses ruled the airwaves. Slated for July 26 and 27, this two-day extravaganza at the historic downtown Train Depot and Harold and Jean Miner Festival Square celebrates not just national headliners but also the vibrant tapestry of local and regional talents.

According to festival promoters, this year’s event promises more than just a musical journey; it’s a cultural festivity with multiple stages, artisan vendors, and a gastronomic spread that captures the local flavor. Early bird enthusiasts are encouraged to act swiftly, as special weekend passes are on sale at a reduced rate only until April 30, with a scheduled price increase set for May 1st. Families can look forward to a welcoming atmosphere, where kids under 5 enjoy free admission, ensuring the rhythms of the past create memories for the future.

The MSFM team, known for their commitment to fusing community connection with live music, is excited to once again transform downtown Kankakee into a hub of melodic excitement and cultural celebration. As the summer sun sets, the stages will light up, inviting fans to revel in the spirited harmonies and the enduring legacy of 90s music.
