When: Thu., June 2 2016
The middle-of-nowhere town of Nelsonville, Ohio becomes an indie music mecca one weekend a year for Nelsonville Music Festival, and this year’s lineup is sure to draw as big a crowd as ever. “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” singer-songwriter Randy Newman is set to headline, and he’ll be supported by some of the biggest underground names of the past few years — expect relative megastars Mac DeMarco and Courtney Barnett to draw quite the crowd. Single day tickets start at $50, and weekend passes are $140 for non-Nelsonville residents. (Eli Shively) nelsonvillefest.org.
