Hot weather didn’t slow down fans at the Heartland Jam music festival in Davenport, Iowa.

Thousands crowded Davenport’s Centennial Park to hear artist such as Dierks Bentley, Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich.

A portion of the proceeds from the weekend event go to the Loren Arp Memorial Foundation, which was established by Loren Arp’s family in 2011 to help children at the University of Iowa Burn Treatment Center.   Loren Arp, whose dream it was to have a Heartland Jam music festival, passed away 40 days after he was burned in a combine explosion October 1, 2010.
