With the Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival just a little over a month away, it’s time to start planning who to see.
Festival officials last week released the stage schedule for this year’s event, set for Oct. 16-18 on Mulberry Mountain.
With three (and a half-ish) days of music, four stages, and nearly 100 performances, it’s impossible to catch everything, but this year’s schedule is spread out well.
For those with early arrival passes ($29 extra), the music starts at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. For everyone else, the fun kicks off at noon on Thursday.
Main stage performers this year include Trampled By Turtles, The Jayhawks, Railroad Earth, and of course, hosts the Yonder Mountain String Band.
Other highlights include the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Nora Jane Struthers, Willie Watson, The Bottle Rockets, Andy Frasco, and Ha Ha Tonka.
Plenty of locals are included on this year’s lineup, like Shawn James & The Shapeshifters, The 1 oz. Jig, and Candy Lee & The Sweets.
Tickets are on sale now and run $145 for a three-day pass with camping. A two-day pass is $105 and a Saturday-only ticket costs $75.
