Sam Bush and Toubab Krewe to Headline DrumSTRONG Benefit Event

Sam Bush and Toubab Krewe will headline this year’s DrumSTRONG, a three-day event that uses music to help raise money for cancer research, education and survivorship assistance. DrumSTRONG will take place May 17-19 at Misty Meadows Farm in Weddington, NC. In addition to a number of performances, the event will also include a 24-hour, non-stop drum circle that the organizers hope will break the world records for the longest continuous drum circle and the largest ever drum circle.

Individual tickets to DrumSTRONG are currently on sale for $30, while family tickets (2 adults and children under 12) are available for $50. Proceeds from the event go to benefit a number of organizations, including the American Cancer Society, Lance Armstrong Foundation, Susan G. Komen Foundation, The Levine Children’s Hospital and more. DrumSTRONG’s full lineup and daily schedule can be found below.
