This summer, get ready for something new Alabama, as Yellowhammer Brewing is renting out the brand new Orion Amphitheater in Huntsville with the aim of raising $100,000 for scholarships to help send 100 children to Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
We’re excited to announce the first T-Minus Music Festival, featuring Americana superstars Old Crow Medicine Show. The music starts at 4 pm at Orion Amphitheater at Mid City in Huntsville. We’ll start with a local standout, Little and the Giants, we’ll have Nashville rocker and returning favorite from Tangled String Music Fest, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and outlaw country singer-songwriter Jaime Wyatt.
Doors open at 3 p.m. Music goes until 10:30 pm.
And all of this is for a good cause. Already, each sale of T-Minus Tangerine Kolsch helps provide scholarships to Space Camp. And thanks to sales in Alabama and Mississippi, you all have helped raise more than $70,000 for Space Camp over the last four years. Now we want to do more and do it quickly, as we hope to raise $100,000 at this event, from ticket sales and from T-Minus sales. This music fest is strictly our way of giving back to Alabama, to raise money for a good cause, and to have some fun. All proceeds from T-Minus Festival will go to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Education Foundation.
And there will be plenty of T-Minus on tap, as well as other Yellowhammer brews, for the fest!
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 18 at 10 a.m. through www.axs.com. You can find more information at the websites and social media outlets for Yellowhammer Brewing and Orion Amphitheater.
