The Macrock 2013-2014 committee has announced a list of confirmed bands for their conference on April 4-5. As of now, the line up includes Diarrhea Planet, Iron Reagan, Ex-Cult, LVL Up, Ovlov, and Big Ups. There will be more bands announced as the conference dates approach. The Macrock committee works to put on this conference every year with the intention of bringing bands, labels, artists, and fans together to Harrisonburg, Virginia for a weekend of music-fueled entertainment.
Macrock has been bringing the best of east coast indie music and DIY culture to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley since 1997. It was created by a branch of James Madison University’s student-run radio station, WXJM. Since cutting ties, it is now run by a small committee of volunteers with the help of local businesses and residents.
