Don't Pass Up GAS

The region’s premier exhibition of great emerging artists returns to Davenport for its third installment this February! The biannual GAS Feed and Seed Festival showcases leading original talent in music, comedy, and culinary arts.

Promoted as a community-building event as well as an arts festival, the entertainment begins with a family-style dinner served on Thursday, February 15. Artists and attendees will sit down together for a hearty meal and an opportunity to commune. It’s an ideal way to make friends you’ll bump into all weekend long – and for years to come as this festival continues to thrive. The music starts right after dinner, and GAS keeps rolling on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th with dozens of acts.

Ticket prices vary from single night passes to the 85-dollar Golden Ticket, which gets you into every show, the Thursday night grand feast, and all the secret/private shows at the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar and Raccoon Motel.

From the same minds who brought you Daytrotter and Moeller Nights, GAS Fest draws attendees and performers from across the country. While sponsors seek to represent all genres, each festival tends to have its own “vibe,” so to speak. This edition will offer a shade of the traditional Americana sound with acts like Terra Lightfoot, a soulful blues-rock singer-songwriter (who, ironically, hails from Canada), and Gold Child, a Brooklyn-based psych-folk duo and Paste favorite.

Other artists in the lineup include Daytrotter Downs alum and all-around nice dudes Michigander, solo act John the Baptist, and The Artisanals, a newly-formed band from South Carolina. For the full line-up and schedule, visit
