LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A music festival featuring nine artists and two stages will kick off on Saturday afternoon for a good cause.

Hope Fest was created to unite Texas Tech students and the Lubbock community to serve as a driving force in the fight against cancer. 

Profits made from the festival will be donated to the American Cancer Society and used to find a cure, provide wigs to women with breast cancer, and provide night of rest for cancer patients at the free hope lodge. 

The party with a purpose will take place at the South Plains Fairgrounds on April 7 at 12 p.m.

Entrance to the festival featuring live music, food trucks and vendors is free.

You can purchase tickets to the main stage featuring Casey Donahew by clicking here.
