Rise of the Loser Music Festival- rising from your darkest times in your life, and overcoming adversity or whatever challenges you may face- and that is the idea behind Losing September’s Rise of the Loser Music Festival a two-day festival at the Water Bowl in Muncie, Ind., which takes place August 23rd and 24th. This being the sixth year, the guys from Losing September believe that everyone can overcome adversity and failure, and this is a way to show that, as well as, give back to the community. The festival is non-profit with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the SCARS foundation as well as ARF a local animal rescue. It is a great way to not only listen to music but to contribute to a great cause. The two-day festival will consist of three stages, with acts alternating stages each day from national, regional, as well as local bands performing throughout both days, so you can catch plenty of music.
