“It’s our fifth year, so I felt like I wanted to do something special and bring back a few artists. Every year, being a single stage festival, we deal with having too many artists for not enough slots,” says Sam Summers, who organizes the event. “This year, I had some opportunities to bring some really great artists back, so I thought, what better way to do that than add a third day.”

Friday's headliners include Hozier and Kacey Musgraves. St. Paul and the Broken Bones will play the festival stage on Saturday, and on Sunday, Brandi Carlile, Dawes and Maggie Rogers are all slated for sets.

Summers says he's excited to bring back Brandi Carlile, and to have Kacey Musgraves join the festival for the first time. Carlile and Musgraves are close friends, and Summers says he was trying to book artists who knew each other. 

"After we had Sturgill last year with Tyler Childers perform together and kind of riff off each other, I'm looking for those opportunitiens to put certain people in the festival who will do stuff together,' says Summers. 

Iowa artists The Maytags, Adam Bruce,  Elizabeth Moen, and the band Keuning, lead by David Keunig, are also all on the bill for this year.
