Two of summer’s long-running trends converge this weekend at the official dawn of fall: The Werks playing outdoor music festivals and Legend Valley hosting them.

Ohio’s electronics-infused jam band has been as busy as ever taking their timely musical cocktail across the land, and they’ll stay at it this fall with a tour that stretches from Wisconsin to Colorado to Florida to Maryland. But first they’re hosting their third annual signature event, The Werk Out Music & Arts Festival, relocated from Bellefontaine to Thornville’s resurgent Legend Valley.

The Werks will play three sets this weekend, but the lineup is as sprawling as the campgrounds. Lotus, EOTO and Rusted Root will be on hand, plus fellow live electronics rising stars Papadosio and a band that pioneered this sort of thing, Ekoostik Hookah.

Some of Ohio’s leading EDM artists will be spinning late into the night as well, including roeVy, Magua and Carma + Attak.
