The yet unnamed festival will take place in late June and early July, organizers announced Wednesday.
The Muskegon Festival Group will run the event. It was chosen from four contenders.
The festival's new name is expected to be released soon.
"We're looking at a four- to six-day event to include the Independence Day holiday," said Nick Bessinger, executive director of the Muskegon Festival Group. "We will be booking national and international acts through an agent new to the Muskegon area, and hope to bring a fresh look to outdoor entertainment in the Muskegon market."
