Festival in Sycamore 2016

July 15 and 16, 2016 at Bechtold Park


After his show was cut short last year because of the storms, we are excited to bring back the great
MARK FARNER, formerly of Grand Funk, to perform Saturday, July 16th!  
We are thrilled to announce that following him on stage will be the one and only RANDY BACHMAN, a founder of Bachman Turner Overdrive and The Guess Who, who will be performing the greatest hits of both bands!  Popular locals DV8 will open for these two gold and platinum artists.

We’re also very pleased to be bringing back The Rusty Griswolds on Friday, July 15th. This great regional band is a very popular mainstay of the local music scene. Local band the Refranes will open Friday night for The Rusty Griswolds.
