It’s finally time to start thinking festival season, and you know that’s got us excited. For the rest of the Winter and Spring, we will be bringing you lineup announcements from some of what we consider to be the top notch festivals of the year here in America. And I couldn’t be more happy to kick off this series than with the complete lineup announcement for the 10th Annual Wakarusa Music & Camping Festival. The festival has been happening every year for the past decade in beautiful Ozark, Arkansas. This year the festival is set to be held from Thursday May 30th through Sunday June 2nd, and finally Funkadelphia will be in attendance. What is to be so excited about when attending Waka? How about a beautiful view from the mountains of Arkansas; a cooler, shaded woods camping option; a pristine lake to cool yourself off during those hot festival daytime hours; and an incredibly eclectic lineup including such jam acts as STS9, Umphrey’s McGee and Papadosio; massive electronic acts spanning from the bass heavy Figure, Baauer, SAVOY, Run DMT and R.L. Grime to the psychedelic and mind-blowing Amon Tobin, Shpongle and EOTO to the chilled-out grooves of Gramatik, Tipper, The Polish Ambassador, Emancipator, GRiZ and Samples; hand-swaying hip-hop artists Del the Funky Homosapien and Rebelution; to the happy sunshine rhythms of acts such as The Black Crowes and Of Monsters and Men. And believe me, with all those acts, I still left out A LOT!! Be sure to check out the festival’s official website for full lineup details; and hope to see some of you guys at the end of May!! We’ll be reppin’ The City of Brotherly Love!!
