Town Mountain, Henhouse Prowlers, Tall Tall Trees, Arkansauce, Forlorn Strangers, and Taarka are also on the initial lineup.

The event will also include a picking tent featuring Adam Cox, a local musician and host of the Singled Out radio show, who will conduct interviews, workshops and small performances.

The festival is being organized by a group of partners led by locals Jessica Sumner, Hannah Withers, and Ben Gitchel.

Withers said the event aims to be a family-friendly festival, with several activities planned for children, designated camping areas for families, and a kids-only dance floor near the main stage. Local organization Art Feeds will host a craft tent for kids to make art from recycled materials as well.
