What has been known as Fall Hookahville (even though it is actually still summer) is moving from Frontier Ranch to Zane Shawnee Caverns in Bellefontaine, Ohio, located approximately 45 minutes north west of Columbus. ekoostik hookah’s 48th Hookahville will be held at the highest point in Ohio with cavernous hillsides that roll through the reservation of The Shawnee Nation and provide the perfect setting for camping, music, and fun for music lovers and their families over the holiday weekend. The sound that is captured in this arena is not only fundamental to the festival experience at this pristine venue, it is one of the best in Ohio!

“We are excited to have a new venue for Hookahville and know that our fans will be pleased, said founding member Dave Katz. “This will be a special year as we celebrate Hookahville’s 48th show in our new home with both new and existing fans…some who have never been to The Caverns before”.

Summer Hookahville will once again be produced by AlchemyHouse Presents,which has a long legacy of producing events at Zane Shawnee Caverns,. AlchemyHouse co-founded and launched Ohio’s very own Werk Out Music and Arts Festival in 2010 with the band The Werks. For Hookahville, AlchemyHouse is returning to their roots by throwing 4 days of live music in the format they know best — a mix of national, regional and local bands that will come together to celebrates the love of life, music and each other.

Last year Hookahville hosted artists such as Zach Deputy, Freekbass, Tropidelic, Glostik Willy, Vibe & Direct, Blue Moon Soup, and many more. The headliner and namesake əkoostik hookah are planning multiple sets themselves, including some surprises and special guests.

Festival goers will enjoy a traditional golf outing on Thursday, food and retail vending, cavern tours and including a pioneer village, an onsite art gallery,  transformational workshops, yoga, live art and even an on-site Frisbee golf course. The organizers at AlchemyHouse Presents, əkoostik hookah and Zane Shawnee Caverns are collaborating to ensure that this new home for Hookahville will be another one for the history books!
