XHunger has a pretty simple mission statement. "To help end hunger in America" because why should anyone be hungry? Watch the 2 minute video on their website to learn more.

Here at New Ground, we love to support the future. We offer new musicians access to audiences, and opportunities to network, learn, and grow. XHunger allows students the opportunity to serve their community food banks and pantries by fighting hunger through the l.u.v.s. program. The profound difference of XHunger? It's student led. They believe in the next generation and so do we; it's "Entertainment with a purpose!"

New Ground will be donating a portion of our proceeds to XHunger.com To help end hunger in America and support this local, youth led movement.

Located in beautiful Lakeshore Park in West Knoxville, New Ground is a music festival focused on a new generation of music, and offers emerging artists the chance to put themselves in front of a larger audience, and get a real festival experience.

This is not a talent show. This is not a "kids music festival". This is a real, professional festival giving local bands the chance to show their stuff, so come catch the wave, and you might just find yourself blown away.
