SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) – More than two dozen amateur rock bands participated in the 13th annual Rockin ‘on Main event this year.
With the event being relocated outside of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the bands will take over the city’s Main Street instead.
During the festivities, the Main was closed from 16. to Ford-Strasse so that only pedestrians were admitted. The event has three stages with live music, beer gardens, food trucks, local vendors and restaurants. Visitors can also view some vintage racing cars with live music.
The Rock Garage, a program that trains musicians from beginner to advanced, has helped produce eight full hours of entertainment. News 8’s Randall Newsome caught up with Rock Garage co-owner Dave Foellinger during the action.
Proceeds from the event will be dedicated to the Speedway COVID-19 Relief Fund.
