More About Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence

Inspired by one of the Hoosier State’s most famous authors, Granfalloon brings together musicians, artists, thinkers, and good people from all walks of life for a multi-day celebration of art, ideas, and community to kick off the summer arts scene in Bloomington.

The festival occurs each May, keeping at its heart the ethos of Vonnegut’s life and work: promoting civic engagement, encouraging independent thought, and championing art and creativity as essential to the spiritual life of individuals and the health of our democracy.

Granfalloon 2019 features musical performances by renowned bands from across the U.S., academic panels and keynote addresses from leading Vonnegut scholars, and creative activities presented by IU and the Bloomington community. Guests include Neko Case, Dave Eggers, Parquet Courts, Khruangbin, Sudan Archives, Durand Jones & The Indications, Barrie, Huckleberry Funk, and more.

The festival brings together creative groups and organizations from across Bloomington such as Cardinal Stage, Upland Brewing Company, Secretly Group, Voces Novae, and more.
