The Obelisk Presents: Burnin’ Turf II at Parisville Saloon, Ruth, MI, on June 3

I’m thrilled to count The Obelisk among the slew of sponsors for Burnin’ Turf II at Parisville Saloon in Ruth, Michigan, this June 3. After seeing the first installment come together last year and look like such a damn good time and catching wind of this year’s formidable lineup, it was a no-brainer to get involved in this small way immediately upon being asked, and between the chopper show, the van show, and the show-show itself, the event put together by the dudes from Bison Machine — who are also playing — looks like it’s going to be a killer party and something really special in a sense of more than just a show-up-and-stand-there-bands-changeover-gear kind of fest. All the better.

Ticket presale starts on April 20, but today marks the official unveiling of the lineup, which you can see in the announcement below, which the festival sent down the PR wire.

One more time, let me say out loud how much I appreciate being involved in this. Thanks to Anthony Franchina and all at work behind the scenes on making it happen.

BURNIN’ TURF II – June 3rd 2017 Parisville Saloon – Ruth, MI

“We wanna be free! We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. We wanna be free to ride. We wanna be free to ride our machines without being hassled by The Man! … And we wanna get loaded. And we wanna have a good time. And that’s what we are gonna do. We are gonna have a good time… We are gonna have a party.” -Russ Tamblyn (The Wild Angels)

The Gassers R/C, Parisville Saloon and Bison Machine want you to hop on your bike, pack up your van, grab your friends, grab your tent, leave everything else behind and head up to Parisville for one of the best parties of the year. Burnin’ Turf has returned and its bigger than ever. Seven bands, chopper games, raffles, prizes, drink until you can’t stand because no one needs to leave. Set up camp and live it up because you came to the right place. Everyone is here for the same reason.

Pre-sale goes live on April 20th 2017
