HACKETTSTOWN, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 -- WNTI and Kennedy Events Services will sponsor the second annual WNTI Stage Summer Music Festival on August 16, 17 and 18 at the Knowlton Lions Club Pavilion on Route 46 in Delaware, N.J. The festival is comprised of local and national performers who will play on two stages: the Main Stage and the Café Stage, which is sponsored by Dixon Energy and Hackettstown Regional Medical Center. A pavilion and a large tent will cover the stages, allowing the event to be held rain or shine.

Past performers include Aztec Two-Step, Jim Keller, Joe Janci and Jam-Bone.

"One of the best gigs of the year for me and the band was the WNTI festival 2012. It rocked!" says Jim Keller.

This year, the event is being headlined by Willie Nile, a folk-rock singer-songwriter whom New York Times critic Robert Palmer says is an "exceptional talent," and "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." His 2010 album, The Innocent Ones, was included in Rolling Stone's "Top Ten Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011." With a new album released just this year, Nile is sure to please with both his new and classic hits. For more information about the complete three-day lineup, please visit www.wntistage.org.

Tickets cost is $10 per day. For more information, please e-mail thielm@centenarycollege.edu or call (908) 852-1400, ext. 2109.
