CHURUBUSCO — Two friends put their heads together to offer a local experience built off of what they both love in life — music.
Nate Norris, of Churubusco, and Nicholas Weaver, of Fort Wayne, have attended several music festivals and have a growing appreciation for local talent.
“We had seen so many festivals become overrated and saturated with sponsorships,” Weaver said. “We thought it would be good to have a festival that wasn’t about the hype, but about the music. We also wanted a stage to showcase independent talent.”
With that sentiment, the pair of friends launched Pinestock Music Festival three years ago.
Weaver has a long career in managing bands, and the festival is held on Norris’s land in Churubusco.
“We work as a team,” Weaver said. “I take care of the talent and the music, Nate does the rest. We both really enjoy the experience.”
The Pinestock Music Festival, which will be held Saturday, Sept. 7 starting at noon, takes place in the middle of a 20-acre pine tree farm in a small Churubusco.
