DAVENPORT, IOWA (September 10, 2021) — With everything that life has handed us these last two years, we need Garp Fest more than ever before and even with the necessary relocation of the festival from the barn to beautiful and spacious Schwiebert Park in downtown Rock Island, we're going to have ourselves a good time. We are so very fortunate to be putting on the first ever PawPaw Rod and Petey shows. Both bands are poised to break huge next year and this is your chance to see these Los Angeles phenoms perform for the first time — right here in the Quad Cities. If you're looking for cool kid bragging rights, they're right here!
Also performing at this joint collaboration with the River Music Experience are TORRES, Jonny Fritz, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, Christopher Porterfield of Field Report, and Winterland for all the Dead heads out there! Doors open at 2PM and music begins at 3PM and stretches to 11PM on what's going to be a gorgeous day. Please come out and support these incredible artists who you might not quite know yet. It's the beauty of Garp and this amazing music scene we are building here!
