Organizers announced today that Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters and Yonder Mountain String Band will headline the festival that’s celebrating 20 years of “conscious community” in northern Michigan.
Rootsy Michigan favorites Lindsay Lou, May Erlewine, Airborne or Aquatic, Full Cord, Mark Lavengood Band and Earth Radio also pump up the initial roster of announced artists, along with Larry Keel Experience and Arlo McKinley.
Billed as “one of the Midwest’s premier Americana and roots festivals” and staged on 150 acres of pasture and farmland near Wellston, Hoxeyville attracts about 4,000 festivalgoers.
Last year’s festival featured the likes of bluegrass star Billy Strings (who performed with several different bands), Sam Bush Band, Yonder Mountain String Band and Michigan Rattlers. (View Local Spins coverage of Hoxeyville 2021.)
