ABOUT MEDICINE STONE

 

"There's no music festival like Medicine Stone.  It's hard to describe what it feels like to be there! It’s like taking the most amazing artists and music and mixing in fans, families, and camping. It's one of the best weekends of the year.  From the minute it ends, you're already making plans to go again next year. "  
-Troy Eckelhoff/Program & Music Director  99.9 KTCS  Ft. Smith, AR

 “Medicine Stone is all the GREAT parts of Red Dirt.  Amazing people, incredible moments, and extraordinary music--the kind that seeps into your soul and leaves you wanting more!” -Erin Harper/The Twister Tulsa- iHeartMedia


"Medicine Stone is a gathering of family. This festival clearly defines Red Dirt music. As the days go on the musicians and the fans become the same. After the main first acts are done for the night, you can continue to hear music throughout the many camp sites.  The Illinois River is the perfect setting for the Medicine Stone Event. The 2017 festival cannot arrive soon enough!"  -Justin Neighbor/WDAF Kansas City and KMXN in Lawrence, KS

My Town Media and our stations in Pittsburg, Independence, Chanute and Pratt, Kansas have loved being a part of The Medicine Stone Music Event for the past several years!  We have been behind Red Dirt Music for quite a while…back to when people would give you a funny look and ask ‘What the heck is Red Dirt Music?’  Medicine Stone is a warm, friendly event with a family feel that just keeps you thirsting for more!  We look forward to being a part of Medicine Stone 2017.”   -“Uncle” Joe Manns/My Country 101.7FM
