Wheel House Festival September 13 & 14 2013
Opti-Park in Broad Ripple
The 1st annual WheelHouse Festival is set for Friday & Saturday September 13 – 14 in the Broad Ripple Village. Focusing on DJs & Electronic music, it will be the first festival of its kind in Indianapolis. By combining some of the biggest names in Electronic Music, along with some of the region’s top up and coming djs, the Wheel House Festival will be right in the sweet spot of EDM fans, not only in Indianapolis, but across the Midwest as well.
The idea of the festival came as Vogue Theater talent buyer Matt Schwegman & Keepin It Deep owner DJ, Slater Hogan were chatting over ideas for a one day event. “Next thing we knew, we had offers going out to multiple DJ acts, and it quickly turned into a 2 day event” said Schwegman. The name Wheel House stemmed from the fact that Opti-Park, which is host to many outdoor concerts, is also home to a great Little League baseball field. Not only is the term “Wheel House” referred to as the sweet spot of a hitters strike zone and the area where he/she can hit for the most power, but as Hogan put it “We felt that this term referred to type of festival we would put on, and that it would be the sweet spot for area electronic music fans”.
Acts that will be performing include: Paul Oakenfold, Wolfgang Gartner, The Crystal Method, Flosstradamus, Keys N Krates, Figure, Salva , Slater Hogan, Shy Guy Says, DJ Gabby Love, DJ Lockstar, Cadillac G and many more local & regional acts along with a few big surprises.
On top of the outdoor festival aspect, Wheel House Festival will be hosting official after parties at The Vogue Theater in Broad Ripple. Acts include: Bad Boy Bill, Richard Vission, Tritonal, & Topher Jones.
