Get ready to experience the ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK EXPERIENCE with the famous Midnight Special band. You'll have TWO chances to experience the band that was well received following last year's event. If you like songs from the 70s & 80s, then make sure that Wednesday, July 2nd (8:30-10:30 PM) & Thursday, July 3rd (8:30-10:30 PM) are marked down on your calendars.
This experience will be one of the most unique concert experiences we've ever had at the Field of Flight. This completely immersive concert experience will delight all in attendance. If you were alive in the 70s & 80s, you will relive those days with this authentic concert re-enactment. If you were born after those decades, then you will get to experience those decades through North America's Most Electrifying Classic Rock 'n' Roll Concert!
Complete with special effect lighting, smoke, fog, a staged setting and amazing rock clothing of the era, the band will perform a selection of legendary rock anthems by Queen, Styx, Boston, Journey, Elton John, Deep Purple, Grand Funk Railroad, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Pink Floyd and many more.
What is even more amazing? Kids, be ready. If you ever dreamed of being a rock star of the 70s & 80s then you may get your chance to experience that dream. During the show, the band will perform a "Guitar Hero" segment where kids are invited up to the stage to jam with the band.
Midnight Special is an amazing band that has performed thousands of show for 36 years (that's right, they're from the 70s themselves) and they are an actual, very popular, band themselves. Their Classic Rock experience is just one of the many concert types they offer. All of their music is performed LIVE with no tracks or artificial intelligence...in other words...No Cheating! You won't want to miss this Amazing Rock Experience and High Energy Show of Non-Stop Epic Classic Cuts!

Country Fans, we hope you are ready for a GREAT concert experience featuring Billy Sloan, a "Southern born and bred" country singer and his band. He will be on Center Stage on July 4th from 8-9 PM and 9:30-10:30 PM.
Billy Sloan's voice range goes from floor to heaven and nothing is out of his comfort zone when it comes to his singing. This amazing performer insists that 90% of the music he performs with his band is "real country", something that is hard to find in the Northern parts of the United States. If you are a true country fan, then you are in for a real treat. Billy and his band will perform cover songs and add their own twist to them. In addition, they will also perform original material, which is even better than the covers they do. It's these original songs that have been sweeping the nation ensuring everyone has heard of Billy Sloan.
Billy's vocals, and his original material were critiqued by some of Nashville's top executives. Billy is well on his way to becoming a mainstream country star. Billy presently is signed by the record label TMG and will be releasing a new album this Spring. Make sure you listen to his music on Facebook & Reverbnation!
NEW CARNIVAL by SKERBECK BROTHERS SHOWS
The Battle Creek Field of Flight will be having our ever-popular carnival midway back again this year but it is "under new management" so to speak.

Do you dare to challenge this unique thrill ride?
You can face your fear of heights as you plummet towards Earth on the "Mega Shot" free-fall tower; feel what it's like to hang glide on "Cliff Hangar"; go through a crazy Cuckoo House; play with your kids on numerous children rides, or take in the amazing aerial views from two fabulous Ferris Wheels.
