Summer is right around the corner and preparations for Backwoods Music Festival 2024 are heating up at Mulberry Mountain. The four day and four night festival nestled in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas will be held June 6th through 9th this year.

Backwoods kicked off the countdown till June with an impressive and eclectic mix of performers. Headliners include Illenium, LSZEE (LSDREAM and CloZee collaboration), Tycho, Disco Biscuits, Jai Wolf, and Opuio. San Holo will also be giving a live performance of his album; Existential Dance Music

Other artists bringing electric energy to the lineup include: Wreckno, Papadosio, Raddix, and Equanimous, with his use of multiple instruments that accompany his spellbinding electronic music sets. 90s innovators The Crystal Method and Rabbit in the Moon will be performing as part of their larger US tour. Rounding out the musical lineup includes up and coming bands and dj’s who battled it out to win a spot performing at Backwoods during a cross country search competition called Backroads Tour.  These artists include Loop Story, known for live looping at his shows, Arkiin, Uncle Benny, Clay Doh, Taurus Terrell, Tazmayne, Birds with Teeth, Corey James Clifton, NOBE and others. Music fans will gather around 4 different stages to explore varied genres represented throughout the line up. Those beats will keep pumping from 12 pm to 2 am, then be followed by an after party till 6am for night owls and festival attendees that can't get enough soul shaking grooves.

Backwoods is an entire experience outside of the phenomenal music acts. Over 80 vendors will be on the grounds so you can find that last minute fest ‘fit or to feed those hungry bellies. Visit the non-gambling Frick Frack Casino, where everything is based on trade. Ride the ferris wheel, join festie family for a nightly bonfire, view art installations, play games, or join a drum circle. Adventurers can also take part in the beautiful landscape by hiking to the river or waterfall or by setting up a hammock and relaxing between the trees while you hear the sounds of happy festival vibes float by your ears. 

Guests can delve into personal growth in the many different workshops that will occur during the 4 days. LSDreams Lightcode: Sound Healing Meditation, Yoga, Sound Baths, Tarot, Improv Ecstatic Dance, and a Poetry Jam are some of the mind-expanding and body-moving options that guests can choose to further their festival experience. Take a hoop and Poi class with Kinzspins to add to your flow skills. Or join a group art project creating a community led sidewalk chalk mural. No matter your interests, you will find something to entertain and enlighten you.

And after all that great festival living, where will you rest your head at the end of an exhilarating day?  Backwoods has an option for every guest. From GA car camping and RV’s to VIP options that include luxury glamping tents and special perks like backstage passes to golf cart use. 

So, start packing and planning to head to the mountain. Backwoods 2024 is ready for you.
