Get tickets to Hear Festival HERE

Hear Festival is a music and arts festival in Plymouth, IN, at the Young Amphitheater in beautiful Centennial Park on AUG 4 from 2pm-9pm. This year we bring James Neary and the Bevy Blue as our headliner. They are putting a new spin on soulful, blues-influenced music and we can’t wait to hear what they have in store!

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.
