COSHOCTON – Casee Allen is bringing his No Name Town Music Fest back to Coshocton.

The Coshocton native and Nashville recording artist will host his festival on Saturday, June 29 on Main Street in front of the court house. Music will start at 4 p.m. with a variety of artists taking the stage including Allen himself.

“So far, I think we are going to end up with a total of seven or maybe eight performers,” Allen said. “There will be a main stage and side stage with acoustic acts performing in between sets on the main stage.”

Tickets can be purchased online at eventbrite.com. General admission tickets are $10 online or $11 at Shelby Theaters. Children 12 and under are free. A limited number of $30 VIP tickets also are available. They include extras such as a meet and greet starting at 5 p.m. at Coshocton Village Inn & Suites with food and beverage, roped off seating in front of the stage, and discounted festival merchandise.

“I think the VIP tickets are already half sold out,” Allen said.

Last year’s concert was planned in just three weeks and nearly 600 tickets were sold.

“It was remarkable and definitely something we want to continue to do,” Allen said. “I have to thank Coshocton for allowing us to shut down Main Street and Our Town Coshocton for helping us get the beer permit in such a short time. To see Coshocton come together with such a short notice and support this was incredible.”

Returning from last year’s concert will be Nick Walker and new to the lineup are Jutt Huffman and Brian Milson. Other acts and special guests will be announced in the near future.

“I’m putting together a list of acts that I’ve helped and worked with and for the most part are from Ohio,” Allen said.

In addition to working on his festival, Allen also is starting a scholarship to award to a graduating Coshocton County high school senior.

“I’ve always wanted to do this,” Allen said. “This is something I hold close to my heart. I want it to really make an impact.”

The details of the scholarship haven’t been finalized, but he knows grade point average and character will be key factors in determining recipients.

Allen also has been busy touring and working in his studio on a project that will come out this summer.

“A lot of supper exciting stuff is going on this year including being at the Ohio State Fair on Aug. 1,” he said. “On top of all that, I’ve also been my son’s t-ball coach. I’ve really devoted a lot of time to that and don’t have as many shows in April.”
