Hear Festival with Trey Pearson
Hear Festival is a music and arts festival in Plymouth, IN, at the Young Amphitheater in beautiful Centennial Park on AUG 5 from 2:30-10:30pm. This year we are excited to have TREY PEARSON as our headliner.
The purpose of Hear Festival is to raise awareness for those with mental illness, give people affected by mental illness a place of hope, and help educate all people. We do this through music and art and spoken word and the like. It’s a genuinely great time.
Hear Festival is family-friendly and, while we have food trucks and the like there, you are able to bring in your own food. You can also bring in alcohol if you so desire, but understand that if you become unruly, you will be asked to leave.
You can get Early Bird, Group, and other package TICKETS on Eventbrite.

With his band Everyday Sunday, Trey Pearson has sold hundreds of thousands of records, and amassed millions of streams. He has scored 5 #1 U.S. singles and 20 Top 10 hits. His song “Wake Up! Wake Up!” was the most-played Christian rock song of 2007, and his 2009 album, “Best Night of Our Lives,” broke onto the coveted Billboard 200 chart. Pearson has toured in all 50 states and 20 countries, playing with top Christian musicians such as Toby Mac, Switchfoot, MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, Relient K and others.
Recently, Trey Pearson, the founder of Everyday Sunday, has come out of the closet to make national news. His announcement started a national conversation with a television appearance on The View. It has been covered by The New York Times, Billboard Magazine, CNN and more, as he became the most trending topic worldwide on Facebook.
He will be releasing his debut solo album in 2017. For now, though, be aware of his previous band’s work with this video!
Stop.Drop.Rewind is “what happens when emo kids grow up and get jazz degrees.” They are a progressive/powerpop band from Valparaiso, IN. Members Kris Lohn and DJ Crenson have been playing together since 2000. Andy Sutton joined – with a big leap forward – in 2015; they filled out their live sound with Josh Andrews on lead guitar in late 2016. Stop.Drop.Rewind has released 3 EP’s: “Part of the Whole” (2012), “Smoke Signals” (2014) and “Polarity” (2016). They have toured regionally since 2012. They have played in 10 states, and opened for The Misfits, Hawthorne Heights, The Spill Canvas, Amber Pacific, Real Friends, among many. We look forward to them delivering a powerhouse performance at Hear Festival!
The Tumbleweed Jumpers’ repertoire features original songs about love and loss, violent weather patterns, and beasts both domestic and mythological. Their music is influenced by rock, blues, folk and bluegrass, modern twists on Irish and early American folk tunes, and rabble-rousing sea shanties. The Jumpers squeeze a plethora of instruments (and instrumentalists) onstage, including guitars, bass, drums, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, trombone, cajon, tin whistle, melodica, keyboard, bell kit, a length of heavy chain, and your grandma’s false teeth. Mashing up traditional, modern, folk, rock and jazz means every song carries a slightly different feel, making The Tumbleweed Jumpers perhaps the true embodiment of the Americana spirit.
Letters From Earth is an indie/alternative rock band hailing from South Bend, IN. An impressive assembly of four young songwriters formed as a basement band in 2014, the quartet collaborates to turn out pop melodies, classical change-ups, and hip-hop head-bobbing rhythms all over thrashy breakdowns. Amy Van Dyke (Grand Rapids, MI) heads up the group, as the other three instrumentalists shuffle duties. The whole band brings a high-energy and impactful show looking that takes listeners through a stellar experience. Letters From Earth is quickly becoming one of the many attractions born from a Mid-West Indie scene. They appeal to a very wide audience, with influences as diverse as Brand New, Florence and the Machine, Regina Spektor, and Modest Mouse. We are really excited to have them coming to Hear Festival.
Lalo Cura comes to Hear Festival from Goshen, IN. They are a a Spanish Rock band. Formed in 2012, Lalo Cura has developed a unique sound that combines every musical genre that has influenced each member of the group. The band is led by Rafael Chávez y Moreno on guitar and vocals; Sam Que on saxophone; Sonny Carreño on drums and Adam Hart on bass. They are truly a unique band and deserve to have their live show experienced up close and personal. Hear Festival is beyond excited to have them!
Back to play their second Hear Festival is Slow Orbit! They are a powerhouse duo, a sonic steamroller, a polygamous marriage of psychedelic funk, gritty rock and roll, 70s fatback soul, and psychedelic Americana roadtrip songs that gives birth to a sonic tapestry of pure dancefloor fun. Really, they are great and we are excited they decided to accept our invitation to come back and party with us at Hear Festival!
Dad Jokes is a 3rd Wave Ska Punk band from South Bend, IN. Inspired by the soundtrack of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (the first one). Their motto is “Don’t take yourself too seriously. Hang out and skank with friends.”
