“As pioneers of the music and motorsports festival concept, the GRIDLIFE Midwest Festival authentically brings together the cultures of cars and music. It hosts dozens of nationally touring musical acts on Friday and Saturday nights, with non-stop motorsports on track all day, including the wheel-to-wheel GRIDLIFE Touring Cup, epic full-course drifting with some of the world’s best drivers, and the brutal speed of Time Attack in the NOS Energy TrackBattle Championship. Coupled with much more throughout the festival, it’s truly an experience like nowhere else in the world.” – Chris Stewart (festival organizer)
