Musicians rally for pipeline explosion victims

The Lincoln County Fairgrounds will turn into a rock music venue this weekend.

In another sign of community solidarity, local and area musicians will be presenting a benefit concert for families affected by the massive gas pipeline explosion in the Indian Camp Community in Moreland on Aug. 1.

The Rock Cares Festival is scheduled for Saturday at the fairgrounds starting at 3 p.m. and 100 percent of the proceeds will be distributed to the victims of the Lincoln County explosion.

There are nine acts confirmed for Saturday’s lineup. Those artists slated to perform at the festival are Potential Alibi, Fired Up, Raised on Dirt, Collective, Gravel Switch, Raven Hyde, Some Rock Band, Gypsy Witch and Vagabond Blue.

The gates open at 2 p.m. and admission is $10 per person, $40 per carload. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.

All proceeds will be handled by the Hustonville Helping Hands Family Resource Center.
