This will be the 37th biannual Hookahville, festivals which traditionally kick off or bring a close to the summer season.

Trickle Productions will once again present the weekend of music and camping at the legendary Legend Valley venue, located just off Interstate 70 east of Columbus.

There will be a variety of artisans selling unique crafts and merchandise, as well as vendors of fine festival cuisine. Of course, coolers and traditional camp gear will be welcome.

Hookahville is a homegrown festival that celebrates and showcases great music with a "no hassles or bad attitudes" motto. It not only brings some of the best regional acts together before huge crowds, but also plays host to big name artists, and of course, one of the most electrifying bands to call Ohio home.

A limited number of advance tickets are available at a discount price online. VIP tickets will once again be available, and they include behind-the-stage camping next to your vehicle with easy access into the concert bowl and expanded facilities. Early bird tickets for Friday night arrivals are also available. Children age 12 and under will be admitted for free with a paid adult.
