Musikfest has evolved in many ways since its birth 30 years ago in the heart of Bethlehem, PA. It’s grown from six stages to 14, it’s welcomed bigger and bigger artists to the main stage each year (Keith Urban, The Avett Brothers, Steely Dan, Maroon 5, Ray Charles, Earth Wind & Fire, Carrie Underwood), and it’s even changed geographically as the city’s landscape has developed (most recently, several festival sites have been relocated to the stunning SteelStacks arts campus).
