Located at the foot of Blues Hill in Canton, Prowse Farm will host the festival’s three stages and plethora of activities across its 44-acre property. The full artist line-up for the 2013 Life is good Festival is scheduled to be released on June 17.

Kids (2-12 years) 2-day passes are available for $35 tickets (2-12 years) are $20 for one day, $35 for a two-day pass; kids under 2 years are admitted for free. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Life is good Playmakers, the action arm of the Life is good Kids Foundation.

Each ticket buyer will be directed to a personal fundraising page, where they are encouraged to raise funds to support The Life is good Kids Foundation. Festival-goers who raise $500 or more will be rewarded with exclusive backstage hospitality, preferred concert viewing, artist meet and greets and other perks.

“As a company with a positive purpose, we’re making it easy for families to do what they love while supporting a great cause,” said Bert Jacobs, chief executive optimist for Life is good, in a press release. “What makes this Festival unique is the community of fundraisers who come together to help kids in need.”
