Wisconsin summers are unique. Heat we can actually appreciate, looser schedules, and really cold beer. Add incredible live music in a barn and there’s no better place on earth. Your trusted source for local and national music coverage, Jonk Music is excited to bring all these things together on Saturday, August 16, 2014 for the second annual Solskinn Music Festival.

Solskinn began last year as a part of Make Music Madison and is proud to establish a tradition of showing off talented local artists. The event will take place this year at storied and heavily loved The Shitty Barn in Spring Green, Wis., just a short drive from Madison. A variety of exceptional local and regional groups will join us this year, including Boom Forest (solo), Building on Buildings, Fargo, GGOOLLDD, Jeremiah Nelson, and Old Earth. They will combine for a day soundtracked by the highest quality folk, experimental rock, indie pop, and everything in between.

Summer nights were meant for picnicking with friends, and this need be no different. Grills will be available for free use outside the barn, guests are encouraged to bring picnic blankets and chairs, and Spring Green’s fine Furthermore Beer will be sold. So grab some friends and some fee-free tickets; it’s time to get shitty.

When problems arose with last year's site (Elvehjem Park on Madison's east side), we were lucky enough to have our friends at The Shitty Barn save the day by offering up their space to us for the day. The second annual Solskinn very most likely would not be happening without their generosity.

Please note this is not an official Shitty Barn session; rather they are merely allowing us use of their turf for the day, so please be kind and play nicely.

If you are unfamiliar with The Shitty Barn, it is a place where audience and performer co-exist in an intimate and integrated space with as little separating instruments and ears as possible. No stage. A limited number of tickets sold. It's like having the performance in your living room—except in this case, a shitty barn.
