“New Moon cast descends on Nashville. Jackson Ratbhone hosts music festival with friends and fans”

“As if it wasn’t enough to have the biggest movie of the year hitting theaters next month, New Moon star, Jackson Rathbone, is adding a music festival to his to do list. Rathbone and some of his fellow cast members will be hosting the NewCon Festival in Nashville, Tennessee from November 6th through the 8th.

Jackson’s band, 100 Monkeys, will be headlining the festival. The weekend includes Twilight and New Moon inspired art competitions as well as poetry and fan fiction contests. 100 Monkeys will also be part of an open jam session on Saturday, November 7th. Anyone attending the festival can bring their instrument to jam with the band for two hours.

The band will pick one lucky fan to join them on stage Saturday night during their concert at The Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville.

Award winning artist, Kelly Garrett Rathbone, (Jackson’s sister) will be one of the judges at the art competition and a panelist during the Q&A sessions over the weekend. She currently has pieces on exhibit in galleries nationwide.

NewCon’s goal is to inspire people to get more involved in the arts. The winners of the writing and art contests will get a private meet & greet with all attending cast members and have their winning pieces signed by them as well. “We wanted to do something different that inspires people to get off their couch and create something,” said Rathbone.

100 Monkeys will also host a ‘design your own t-shirt’ contest during the festival. The winning shirt will actually get printed as a limited edition and sold on the band’s website, with all of the money going to the Spencer Bell Legacy Project. Spencer was a dear friend of Jackson and his band mates who lost his battle with adrenal cancer in 2006.

The weekend promises to be anything but ordinary. More cast members and bands will be announced every week leading up to the event. To make sure everyone has time to fully enjoy the festival, there are only 400 tickets
available. The Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center is the host hotel for the festival.
