This Grammy-nominated band will headline the festival in support of their sixth studio album Hard Love.

The Christian-rock group is known for its homegrown sound and has been on the scene since their album debut in 2006. Today their sound delves into more rustic, alternative and southern rock while they maintain their inspirational sound.

Dr. Dog

Leaning more towards the psychedelic side of the rock spectrum is Dr. Dog. This eight-man lineup band is currently on tour promoting its eighth album, Abandoned Mansion.

A festival favorite, the band has been pumping out their unique and chill sound since 1999, drawing inspiration from other rock icons like the Beatles and The Beach Boys.

Shovels and Rope

A husband and wife duo, Shovels and Rope are hitting the festival stage from South Carolina, with cuts from their new album, Little Seeds.

The duo is known for their country inspired rock sound with both musicians having previous experience in other bands playing Americana and folk music.


Folk and pop music form a perfect union also known as Bombadil. The group just released their latest album, Fences, earlier this March.

A little quirky, a little earthy and a little loud, this band is known for their incredible vocal harmonies, creative writing, and winsome shows.
