Nelsonville Music Festival Lineup Stacks Higher With New Announcements


Nelsonville Music Festival, that Southeast Ohio music-lovers congregation that grows by leaps and bounds each year, is looking mighty fine this year.

The fest takes place May 28-31 in bucolic Nelsonville, Ohio. Camping is an option, as are any of the wonderful roadside motels that dot Route 33 and such. 

If you have never been, we highly recommend it. 

Tickets clock in at $130 for the weekend, and day passes will be available starting in April.

With a new announcement from the organizers today, here's where the lineup stands:

The Flaming Lips
Merle Haggard
St. Vincent
Trampled by Turtles
Hurray for the Riff Raff
Greg Brown
Moon Hooch
Natural Child
My Bubba
Sarah Neufeld
Good English
and more...
