With the festival coming closer, BAALS Music Festival welcomes Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne with open arms as the title sponsor for this summer’s festival! In past years, the festival has partnered with locally owned businesses and companies throughout Fort Wayne to get not only the community involved, but to also bring together the city through something that’s beneficial to all. We here at BAALS are excited about the partnership with IPFW and the impact the university has on the community. The partnership shows what it could do to help grow BAALS Music Festival and IPFW in community based events; because roughly 70-80% of the festival attendees are current or past college students.
BAALS Music Festival loves to give back to the community, but with gained respect and credibility from the city, it’s nice to know that there are companies, and now the main university in the area, that want to help make BAALS Music Festival something much greater than what the name stands for. The city of Fort Wayne has always been know as a community of businesses working together to better the city, unlike a lot of other cities, and we take great pride and honor in having the university joining our team this year! The collaboration with IPFW shows what partnerships the event can spark, but that the university is looking to get Mastodon pride into downtown Fort Wayne! Join the Herd!
