Sophie & Madigan loved music, dance, and art! What better way to celebrate and raise funds for Sophie and Madigan's Playground than to throw an amazing music and arts festival catering specifically to kids and their families! National and local musicians and artisans will gather in Frederick to take part in this unique kid centered event giving families the opportunity to come together PLAY, LEARN, and CREATE new and meaningful memories.

Our music stage will be headlined by the Imagination Movers and feature national and local favorites along with several young emerging artists
Appearance times below are tentative and subject to change.
With a family musical lineage that goes back three generations it's no surprise that EmiSunshine of Madisonville, TN is a natural performer. A video of 9 year old Emi singing "Blue Yodel No. 6" took the internet by storm earlier this year and led to Emi being featured on NBC's "Today" show.
Kidstock will feature several student musicians and bands from the Frederick Rock School. Let There Be Rock School - Frederick is a combination music lesson facility and after school rock and roll community center. Students learn to play guitar, bass, drums, keys, vocals, DJ, and Record Engineering while interacting with their peers.
Effortlessly balancing the tightrope between Pop, Country, Americana, and Indie Rock, Shane Gamble's music comes across like a freight train heading full steam on the road less travelled. Propelled by a steady and assured rhythm section, layered guitars, and beautiful vocal harmonies, Shane rhapsodizes about love, loss, and emotional redemption.
Mr. Jon & Friends is Parents' Choice Award winning music for kids and their families! This energetic family music is all about fun, movement, and laughter! We know you guys will like it!
Rocknoceros has entertained music lovers throughout Virginia, Maryland, and DC since its inception in 2005, winning eight Washington Area Music Awards and landing an ongoing Video-on-Demand offering through COX Cable. Rocknoceros has gained significant national recognition with performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Wolf Trap, and The Kennedy Center.
The Pop Ups are a GRAMMY Nominated Brooklyn-based musical duo which the Wall Street Journal says "reflects the creativity percolating on the independent children's music scene." Time Out New York Kids recognizes them as one of the top 15 kids' music bands in the nation. In April 2014, the duo made their national TV debut on Sprout's "Sunny Side Up Show," and they will release their third all-ages release celebrating the power and joy of creativity, Appetite for Construction, in summer 2014.
The New Orleans-based Imagination Movers are an alternative rock band for preschoolers. Though their catchy tunes are expressly written for kids, they strive to make their music equally as enjoyable for parents. Collaboratively written by the four guys, the music covers a variety of genres including old funk, new wave, punk, country, ballads, hip hop, American rock and more, with each Mover bringing his own musical sensibility to the table. The Movers have filmed three seasons of their hit music-and-comedy series for Disney Junior and they have sold roughly 250,000 CDs and DVDs to date.
