For the second year, Eagle Point Camping Grounds at El Dorado Lake State Park was converted into a venue for some some national country music artists Friday and Saturday.
A total of 10 bands played the main stage with several more playing the Beach Party stage after the main concert.
The event opened with Levon, an up and coming Nashville Band that has releases an EP and is currently in the studio working on a single.
This was only the second trip to Kansas for the trio of Michael David Hall, Jake Singleton and Ryan Holladay. They had previously been to Salina and want to come back to next year’s Dam Music Fest.
“It was awesome but it was hot,” Hall said. “We were with an amazing line up. The drive here was one of the most beautiful drives we’ve ever taken even though it was 12 hours.”
As an up and coming act, Levon is hungry to get their name out there and open for other national artists.
“Just any chance we get as a young band to open up for bigger artists is a blessed opportunity,” Hall said. “We made the most of it and had a blast.”
“Awesome festival,” Singleton said. “Crowd was fun. Couldn’t ask for a better time.”
Levon headed back to Nashville Friday after performing to get back in the studio.
“We’re working on our brand new single to put out on the radio soon,” Singleton said. “Couldn’t be more excited about that. It’s been awhile since we put new music out. Had some people asking for it, so we are really happy to give them something new.”
Jimmie Allen followed Levon in the main stage Friday followed by the Cadillac Three, Aaron Lewis and Brantley Gilbert.
Saturday was opened with Waterloo Revival followed by High Valley, Colt Ford, Jamey Johnson and Toby Keith.
