About

Spirit of ‘68 Promotions was founded under the notion of bringing the best and brightest artists from across the country to Bloomington. Turning a blind eye to genres or musical prejudices, we do what we can to get as diverse a lineup as possible into the stages and basements of Bloomington. In effect, we bring the music to you because distance and high gas prices shouldn’t be a barrier to hearing great music.

Shows brought to you by the fine folks at Spirit of ’68:
