Chance The Rapper To Headline Karoondinha Music Festival At Penn’s Cave This Summer

After announcing its first set of artists like John Legend and Alessia Cara at the end of February, a new three-day music festival at Penn’s Cave unveiled the rest of its lineup Tuesday morning, including Chance the Rapper, Paramore, and Young the Giant.

The first annual Karoondinha (pronounced ka-roon-din-ha) Music and Arts Festival will take place July 21-23, 2017 at Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park, about a 25-minute drive from State College.

You can learn more about the types of passes available for the festival here, starting at $279 plus fees for all three days. To use our promo code “ONWARDKHA” to get a special discounted price, be sure to order your passes here here.

Here’s a look at the full list of artists:

Siblings Kaleena and Paul Rallis, who created the festival, grew up working at their family business — Penn’s Cave. After working in the entertainment industry, the duo wanted to bring a destination music and arts event back to Central Pennsylvania.

Penn’s Cave features acres of sunflowers, trout fishing, off-road tours, and native wildlife like mountain lions, wolves, bison, bears, longhorn cattle, and bighorn sheep. The Seneca tribe named the land Karoondinha, which means “The Land of Shining Waters.”

Karoodinha is also partnering with the Wildlife for Everyone Foundation, which celebrates Pennsylvania wildlife, and the Bestwick Foundation, which helps local families and individuals struggling with cancer or other hardships.
