Tickets for September 30-October 2 festival on sale now

Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District announced seven musical acts will be featured as part of the music lineup for Harvest Fest, September 30-October 2. The 2022 Harvest Fest is scheduled to provide 15 hours of musical entertainment over three days.

The fun begins 5:30 p.m. Friday evening when The Hat Guys take the music stage to play a diverse selection of modern and classic hits spanning more than 50 years. The Hat Guys bring a live performance that harkens the soulful exuberance, vibrant pageantry and unapologetic revelry of a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade. They are veterans of the Chicago music scene and have performed regularly on WGN-TV.

Four different musical acts—The Noize, Dan Asio, One Hott Mess and Run Forrest Run—will take the stage Saturday, delivering nine hours of musical entertainment between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The Noize will entertain audiences with the band’s unique sound and interpretation of rock, pop, funk and country hit songs delivered in a high-energy manner beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1. The band has performed at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, local Chicago festivals, summer concert series and as pre- and post-game entertainment for Chicago’s major sports teams.

From 1-2 p.m. and 4-5 p.m. Saturday, Dan Asio is scheduled to perform original music as well as covers. Asio, formerly of Tonic Freight Train, has released several EPs over the past several years. With influences from progressive rock, metal, funk, Ska and Reggae, Asio’s music can be described as a personal, laid-back commentary on this journey called life.
At 2 p.m., Chicago-based One Hott Mess is scheduled to take the stage with high-powered and electrifying, audience-focused music from the 80’s, 90’s and today. The band looks to bring the good times back by bringing life to forgotten hits, inspiring audiences to dance like no one is watching and sing to the top of their lungs.

Run Forrest Run brings all things 90s to the stage from 5 p.m. until close Saturday. The band calls itself the ultimate 90s party band with the look and sound of the 90’s, a time when slap bracelets were still cool.

Two bands will take the music stage Sunday, October 1. Chicago’s premier pop-reggae cover band performs at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, October 2. The band takes hits from many genres and makes them their own. From 2:30-4:30 p.m., The Birdhead will fly at an altitude of sound blending 90s grunge, classic rock and a bit of jammy flair. The four songwriting members collaborate on both originals and covers ranging from classic to unique. With a few years of basement sessions mixed with a dose of local shows, their electric wings continue to flutter with the same burning intensity they found when they first jumped the nest.
