“We are excited at the opportunity to host WonderRoad in our city,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “Indianapolis is known for its thriving arts community, as well as a tradition of musical excellence and innovation. WonderRoad is a great fit within that rich history, and we look forward to extending Hoosier hospitality to those attending from across the country and neighborhoods right here at home.” 

Said Elevation President Denny Young, “Indianapolis is an important part of Elevation’s history. Our company was built around music and motorsports and I am proud to say that we have been a part of two Indy 500 victories.”

WonderRoad is the third Elevation project of this type, following WonderStruck in Cleveland and WonderFust Music & Arts Festival in Columbus, Ohio. “As we continue our expansion of highly curated festivals that include top global acts, a fan-friendly environment plus local artistic, civic and corporate involvement,” Young added, “Indianapolis is the best next market for us. MOKB’s Dan Kemer is one of my closest friends, who happens to be the very best concert promoter in this region. To have Dan, Josh (Baker) and the entire MOKB team by our side is a massive advantage.”
