The Morristown, Indiana music festival is celebrating its eighth year, and with this comes some changes. Some of you who follow the social media of MSMFest may have noticed the Wolfsbane name took on a new role, as well as Stone Tree Studios. From this year forward, we will be running the festival. Joshua James Hall, and Deming Morrison of Stone Tree Studios, as well as myself, Olivia Mayes, of Wolfsbane Music Co.
All three of us have worked with MSMFest for several years, and are quite happy and excited to take over the music festival that we love. With the wonderful welcoming of the three of us, we must say good-bye to the one who started all of this and brought his dream to life, Jason Chisham. Chisham created this festival eight years ago, with the intent to bring the music community to his home town of Morristown, IN. He has turned this festival into something incredible with dozens of notable bands in the alumni. We are very grateful that he created this and gave us so many wonderful memories at MSMFest. Stone Tree Studios and Wolfsbane are devoted to making this festival the best it can be and give those new festival-goers the chance to make memories and have a fun weekend with their friends and favorite bands.
I know, personally, this means quite a bit to be able to have such a predominate role in the festival. This is an opporunity I have dreamed of having since the first year I attended. Luckily, I have been able to work closely with the festival the past few years, and now taking the step above that to co-run the festival. I have also been able to work with and know those who are a part of Stone Tree Studios, and am very happy to be sharing this role with them.
For this year, in case you haven't heard, we have released an updated line-up at our website MSMFest.com
This year, a new addition is a short-film showcase presented by Static Heart Productions and Undefined Cinema. Some of the other perks about the festival will be camping space available during the festival, local food vendors, and a dedicated area to buy merch from every band that has it available.
We would like to thank everyone who has continued to support the festival through the years and the friends and family who knew of this transition who have supported us. We appreciate the encouragement and kinds words more than you will ever know!
See you at the festival!
