We are just weeks away from the 8th Annual Yonder Mountain String Band Harvest Music Festival taking place at the most beautiful festival site I have ever stepped foot on, Mulberry Mountain. While Mulberry Mountain has now become the home to three total major music festivals, Harvest Festival still stands out as “THE” festival for many folks. Harvest keeps the crowd size limited and far more intimate than the larger Wakarusa Music Festival and the newly formed Thunder on the Mountain country music festivals. Attendance at the Harvest Music Festival usually caps out around 8000. Plus instead of covering up the beautiful main stage with a rented stage, you actually get to watch your headliners play on this stage!

Another great aspect of the Harvest Festival is that the Yonder Mountain String Band are the official hosts each year, and the lineup stays a little tighter than the eclectic mix at Wakarusa with pretty much all bluegrass, Americana and folk music taking the reigns. There are a few fantastic exceptions such as Beats Antique and the Mike Dillon Band (DO NOT MISS THE MIKE DILLON BAND!) This year also features the return of Les Claypool to Mulberry Mountain… his third trip to the Mountain with his third different project. Previously he has appeared at Wakarusa with Primus and also just as Les Claypool. This time he is bringing along Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang, a project that I am incredibly excited to see first hand. Check out the video below for a taste of twangy Claypool.

Be sure not to miss the Everyone Orchestra, conducted by Matt Butler and featuring Al Schnier of moe., Jeff Austin of Yonder Mountain String Band, Tim Carbone and Andy Goessling of Railroad Earth, Dango Rose, Bridget Law and Bonnie Paine of Elephant Revival, Isayah Warford and Mike Dillon and Carly Meyers of Mike Dillon Band.

Other acts rounding out the 2013 lineup include: JJ Grey and MoFro, Kasey Musgraves, Justin Townes Earle, Greensky Bluegrass, Dirtfoot, Steep Canyon Rangers, Gangstagrass, Hot Buttered Rum, Dehli 2 Dublin, Darrel Scott and Tim O’Brien, Hot Club of Cowtown, Ha Ha Tonka, Andy Frasco and the U.N. and many many others!

Be sure to check out some of the other great events taking place at the Harvest Music Festival such as the Fiddlin’ and Pickin’ Contest… where you can take home a basket full of SWAG and a cash prize. At 9AM on Saturday morning, be sure to check out the Chompdown… a communal breakfast ran completely by the festival patrons that has become tradition for all Harvest Music Festivals and Wakarusa Festivals where you can munch on some good eats while watching Dirtfoot and Friends perform a stripped down set in the campground.

LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT: 10th Annual WAKARUSA / May 30-June 2, 2013 / Ozark, AR

WAKARUSA / May 30-June 2, 2013 / Ozark, AR

For the 10th straight year the Wakarusa Festival will return bringing 4 days of music, camping, and all around shenanigans to Mulberry Mountain. Starting in Lawrence, Kansas way back in 2004 before relocating to the paradise that is Mulberry Mountain Resort in Ozark, Arkansas in 2009, Wakarusa has become one of the premiere festivals out there and they have certainly found their little slice of heaven in the Northwest corner of the state just outside of Fayetteville. Intimate sized campgrounds and lots of shade for campers to score (first-come of course) make for a perfect setting. This year will mark the 10th anniversary and rumors have been flying around for months of who may be there to celebrate.

The 2012 edition featured Primus, Avett Brothers, Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Bob Weir Acoustic Trio, Umphreys McGee, Keller Williams, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zero’s, and Ghostland Observatory in addition to many other groups. Previous years have featured everyone from Ben Folds, Grace Potter (below, R), Mumford and Sons, and Cake to Umphreys McGee (below, L), String Cheese Incident, Widespread Panic, and The Flaming Lips. Recent years have brought the addition of the Interstellar Meltdown electronic portion of the festival, which is when the freaks flags fly with pride into the early morning hours. Bassnectar, STS9, Disco Biscuits, and Thievery Corporation have all headlined the Meltdown and bassheads and techno hippies alike are bound to be satisfied once again this year.

Check out our coverage of previous Wakarusa Festivals: 2011 or  2012

   

This year the lineup is being released over a period of three consecutive Thursdays. The first third of the lineup was released today and its no surprise to see the big guns being brought out for the 10th anniversary of the best festival in the Midwest.

———————————–

Keep in mind this is just 1 of the 3 announcements, all said to be of equal weight. So expect to see a few more headliners in addition to a hundred other bands.

4/26  UPDATED: As we are just about a month way from Wakarusa, the bittersweet day of SCHEDULE RELEASE has come. Jubilation for some who can now confirm that arriving Friday won’t force you to miss Umphrey’s McGee’s late night or Primus and the Avett Brothers. Yet it brings disappointment for others, who now have to wonder do I REALLY want to miss Perpetual Groove to see Pretty Lights? What about Dirtfoot in the small tent or Split Lip Rayfield on the ever so cool Backwoods Stage? DOH! Lucky for you, the stages are all close enough in proximity that you are able to split sets and catch a little bit of both acts, if that is what you have to do.

Some highlights and challenges for me will include:

Weir, Robinson, & Greene Acoustic Trio Thursday on Main Stage followed by Perpetual Groove in the Revival Tent is a must…. but then you have the choice of Split Lip Rayfield, Dirtfoot or Tea Leaf Green late nights!!

Friday brings Blitzen Trapper, followed by some of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, then off to The Avett Brothers and finish it off the Umphrey’s McGee‘s late night set in the Revival Tent, one of the only DO NOT MISS sets of the festival.

Saturday will offer a great chance to relax throughout the day with Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit and The Lumineers, but that interferes with one of my other DO NOT MISS sets, Gary Clark Jr. Good thing you can get from one stage to any other in less than 15 minutes, even faster if you catch a FestiCab! Saturday also features the 12 hour bluegrass takeover of the Kum & Go Outpost stage with Head for the Hills, Mountain Sprout, Hot Buttered Rum, Emmitt-Nershi Band, Travelin’ McCourys feat. Keller Williams, Del McCoury Band, and the Infamous Stringdusters all playing back to back… and you can certainly expect a few sit-ins that day! Hell, it may even just turn into a bluegrass ball!  If banjo isn’t your thing, Umphrey’s McGee will play their Main Stage set prior to the great Primus taking the mountain by storm.

Sunday Funday usually involves lots of rum, drank by way of pineapple,  and lots of lounging. Luckily the lineup helps with this area and we are given a reggae stacked Main Stage including Ugly Lion, Toubab Krewe, SOJA, Slightly Stoopid, and Matisyahu. Sunday also features second sets from Emmitt-Nershi, Infamous Stringdusters, Dumptruck Butterlips, Mountain Sprout, and a Keller Williams solo set.

Start making your schedules now, and dispute with your friends in the weeks to come. But you’re on the clock in just 34 days when it all kicks off with War Chief on the Backwoods Stage.

——————ORIGINAL POST BELOW——————

Only 2 / 3 of the Wakarusa Festival lineup has been released so far, and you should make it a priority to snag your tickets and premium camping passes now because they won’t last!

This year the Waka gods have decided to release the lineup in “3 equally weighted parts.” The first announcement was made last week and featured eletronic producer Pretty Lights, a once in a lifetime chance to see the Bob Weir, Chris Robinson, and Jackie Greene Acoustic Trio, Railroad Earth, Keller Williams, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and ALO as well as many more great acts.

Lineup 2 was just released moments ago and its easy to see that Waka is bringing the heat for their 4th trip to Mulberry Mountain located just outside of Ozark, Arkansas. The additions of Les Claypool and the boys in Primus, Umphreys McGee, Blitzen Trapper, Del McCoury, Tea Leaf Green, Gary Clark Jr, the grumble boogie boys Dirtfoot, and Quixotic have certainly elevated the interest for many people on the fence after seeing the first 1/3 of the lineup.

UPDATED: The final third of the lineup has now been released and the fine folks at Wakarusa aren’t messing around for the 9th installment of the festival. Todays announcement included the additions of The Avett Brothers, hebrew hip hopster Matisyahu, Ghostland Observatory, EOTO, as well as multiple sets from the likes of Slightly Stoopid, Perpetual Groove, Split Lip Rayfield, the Travelin McCourys (including 1 set feat. Keller Williams), and the March Fourth Marching Band, a band that is pretty much a festival in their own right and a MUST SEE.
