New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Hawk Eye Presents, LLC announces the first annual Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival {pronounced ka-roon-din-ha} to take place on Friday, July 21, Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23, 2017, with a kick-off party on Thursday, July 20, at the 1600-acre Penn's Cave & Wildlife Park, America's only all-water cavern and wildlife park. With acres of sunflowers, world-class trout fishing, off-road tours, native North American wildlife, including mountain lions, wolves, bison, bears, longhorn cattle, bighorn sheep and more; the grounds are ripe to host an incomparable experience.

The Seneca Tribe aptly dubbed this land, Karoondinha, meaning The Land of Shining Waters. The three-day, multi-stage, camping festival will highlight over 80 artists, including John Legend, Odesza, The Roots, Chromeo, Alessia Cara, X Ambassadors, and Maren Morris. The first wave of the Karoondinha artist lineup is below with many more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival was conceived by young entrepreneurs and brother-sister duo, Kaleena and Paul Rallis, who grew up in Central Pennsylvania working at their family's business, Penn's Cave & Wildlife Park. With a musical background and working in the entertainment industry for the past decade, the Rallis siblings want to bring their passion for music and the arts back home to create a major destination event, which they feel the region needs. K-HA is set to take the festival experience to an elevated level of uniqueness and quality.

"We knew that we could bring authenticity and refinement to the 'music festival experience' by creating a destination event in the most beautiful, natural setting," said Kaleena and Paul Rallis. They continued, "We hope that the festival-goers enjoy this comprehensive and experiential event - with not only some of the best performers around - but also the natural beauty of our backyard -- Penn's Cave."

Taking a break from the hustle and bustle of urban America, festival-goers will have opportunities to enjoy cave, wildlife, and off-roading tours, as well as art installations, daily workshops, and an unbeatable gourmet food experience.

Karoondinha Music & Arts Festival has partnered with the following local non-profit organizations:

Wildlife for Everyone Foundation
Wildlife for Everyone Foundation celebrates the rich heritage of Pennsylvania wildlife as their funding aids wildlife habitats, scientific wildlife research and education, youth education and land preservation.

Bestwick Foundation
The Bestwick Foundation is a local non-profit organization nestled in the heart of State College, PA. Money raised is distributed to local families and individuals who are struggling to fight cancer and other hardships.
