The following day, Saturday, August 17th, will see indie rock royalty Fleet Foxes lead a lineup that includes Sudan Archives, Moneen, and the dynamic duo Chali 2na & Cut Chemist, among others.

The festival will conclude on Sunday, August 18th, with rising country star Josh Ross, Corb Lund, and Wild Rivers taking the stage, ensuring a memorable end to the weekend.
