Jack Johnson, Daryl Hall & John Oates, and The Roots are just several of the big names that will hit the stage Sept. 21-22 for this year's Life is good Festival in Canton.
The lineup for the annual show was announced today. It will take place at Prowse Farm (rain or shine) and feature a kids' area with stage acts such as Yo Gabba Gabba!, as well as an area for arts activities.
What makes this festival unique? Any net profits or donations made in connection with the festival will go directly to the Life is good Kids Foundation.
If you're planning on and want to put in a little extra work, the Life is good Festival rewards ticket buyers who raise funds for the Life is good Kids Foundation. If the ticket buyer raises at least $500 through their personal fundraising page for the Life is good Playmakers, the action arm of the Kids Foundation, they are deemed VGPs (Very Good People), and receive backstage privileges, access to preferred vantage points, and other VIP-esque treatments.
