After the release of their first full-length album This Is a Stick Up... Don't Make It a Murder, Hit the Lights spent six years touring nonstop with bands such as New Found Glory and Paramore. They also released four more albums, the latest of which, Invicta, was released on January 31, 2012. Since the album’s release, Hit the Lights have been touring.

In between main stage acts, a side stage will feature performances by Midwest Revival and Livethisdown, both of which have members attending Hocking College, as well as Let It Happen from Cincinnati.
