CLEVELAND, Ohio – The second day of this year’s WonderStruck – taking place July 9 and 10 at Lakeland Community College in Kirkland – will kick off with a special event right up the music festival’s alley.
Cleveland.com Life and Culture reporter Troy L. Smith will host a special live version of the CLE Rocks podcast at 1 p.m. on July 10 on the festival’s Radd Stage. The event will feature a panel of experts discussing the state of the music festival and concert industries, what it takes to put on a festival and the future of events such as WonderStruck.
On hand will be Steve Oberman, executive vice president and head of music at See Tickets, which handles ticketing operations for several international festivals including WonderStruck, Electric Zoo, Spring Awakening and Glastonbury.
Also on the panel will be Andrea Smith, tour manager for Vampire Weekend (the band will be headlining Sunday of WonderStruck), and Jackie Popovec, lead singer of Youngstown-based band The Vindys. Rounding out the panel is Denny Young, co-founder and president of Elevation Group, the Northeast Ohio-based company that puts on WonderStruck and Columbus’ WonderBus.
The live version of the CLE Rocks podcast will take a deep dive into the festival industry and take you behind the scenes of what it’s like to pull off such a massive event. Sunday’s event is free for anyone who already has a ticket to WonderStruck, which you can still purchase HERE.
