Both bands will play on Friday, August 28. The Sweet Corn Festival takes place in downtown Urbana from August 28-29. The Psychedelic Furs are best known for their 1981 hit “Pretty in Pink” from the John Hughes movie of the same name:
The festival also includes performances by Central Illinois bands The Diva & The Dude, The Virtues, the Bow-Dacious String Band, and the BBL Jazz Ensemble. The Urbana High School, Central High School, and Centennial High School marching bands will also perform.
The Saturday headliners are still yet to be announced, but will be sometime this later summer.
