Field of Dreams Fest

Field of Dreams Fest is an all-American festival engaging and enriching the community through music and baseball.

The sound of a wood bat hitting a baseball, is the heartbeat of America, and America is all about making your wildest dreams come true. Our dream is to create a unique festival experience for both sports and music lovers, Field of Dreams Fest.

My name is Amanda Cowan, and I have been working in the music industry for 5 years, putting my degree in journalism to use by writing hundreds of reviews, covering a number of different global music festivals, and dabbling in the realm of management and public relations. Though I absolutely love my occupation, the Content Manager for EPIC Productions  and Artist Publicist for EPIC Artist MGMT , I’ve been wanting more, and I’ve been wanting to help others with what I do.

Enter Liam Coghlan, a ball player with a setback due to injury, but always with big dreams. Having played baseball for over 20 years, he remembers his spark, watching a Play Ball With the Bucs instructional VHS over and over at the age of 5. From tee-ball to junior college, the dream continues to burn inside no matter how unlikely the dream may be now.

The two of us Pittsburgh natives have been friends for over a decade, and have watched each other strive in our love for both music and the sport of baseball. When you combine our two passions, you get the Field of Dreams Fest - our dream we want to make a reality.

What’s more American than summer baseball and music? Maybe camping, food and beer, but we’ve got that covered too. The Field of Dreams Fest will be a unique festival the world has yet to experience. Drawing fans of both baseball and music, the weekend long camping festival will consist of a baseball game followed by three nights and two days of non-stop music, a fest-wide BBQ, meet-and-greets, and loads of activities for children (and adults) of all ages - all to take place outside of Pittsburgh in Summer 2017.

The baseball game will showcase the athleticism of collegiate players, along with some appearances by MLB favorites - past and present. Following the baseball game will be a weekend long music festival. Spanned across three stages, talented musicians and artists of all genres will keep the crowds on their feet and dancing under the moonlight.

All money raised through GoFundMe will go towards creating the festival itself, with 30% of proceeds made by Field of Dreams Fest being donated towards The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Our dream is to have the weekend long festival filled with children experiencing something magical.

With talent, work ethic and the ability to fight through adverse situations, you’ve got a shot at succeeding in both music and baseball. Music and baseball have brought us life, and it is only our hope for children to discover the spark to start their dream.

“If you build it, he will come.” Help us build our dream by contributing to Field of Dreams Fest - every little bit helps!

If unable to donate, it would be beyond appreciated and worth as much as a donation if you could share on your social media outlets, with your colleagues, friends, family - anyone and everyone! If you wish to contribute more and learn how to get involved, feel free to let us know! We are seeking all of the assistance and support we can get!
