Wakarusa is one of the longest running festivals of its type, catering to over 20,000 music fans each summer. Wakarusa brings musicians and fans together at one of the country's premiere festival sites, Mulberry Mountain, in Arkansas. Fans make the sojourn to see some of the world's best musicians in an "intimate" festival atmosphere. Wakarusa features 6 stages playing a variety of genres of music. Electronic (EDM), improvisational jam, rock, alt country, singer songwriter, alternative, funk, soul, hip hop are all represented during the 5 day, 175 set marathon event. Yet it's not just the music that keeps the fans coming back year after year, the festival also offers a plethora of daytime activities such as waterfall hikes, artist led workshops, and disc golfing.
"This ain't no urban street party. Wakarusa sets up shop atop the Mulberry Mountain in the Arkansas Ozarks, where leaping into waterfalls and brushing up on yoga in the woods are staple activities amidst the likes of Skrillex, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights
and more." - Vibe Magazine
Over the years, Wakarusa has proved to be one of the best places to catch a band before they break into the mainstream. Wakarusa specializes in presenting your next favorite band. This year will be no different, be on the look-out for a mind-blowing visual production with Amon Tobin, Tipper and the Kansas City based performance ensemble, Quixotic to name just a few of 2013's likely highlights.
"Locally produced and promoted, Wakarusa combines the great outdoors with top-flight bands and artists, creating an environment where Mother Nature co-headlines with established acts as well as tomorrow's stars." - Pollstar.com
On behalf of the entire Wakarusa staff, crew, musicians, and most importantly, our fellow music fans, we look forward to seeing you on the mountain this summer!
