Old Settler's Music Festival is going all out for its 30th anniversary, promising the "best collection of roots-music acts yet." The festival has teased a partial 2017 lineup, in advance of early-bird sales.
Performing at the Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCullough April 20-23, 2017, are Shakey Graves, Del McCoury Band, Los Lobos, Sam Bush, Shinyribs, Sarah Jarosz, Elephant Revival, Anders Osborne, Gaelic Storm, Peter Rowan Band, Travelin’ McCourys, Wood & Wire, California Honeydrops, Väsen, and The Honeycutters. This is the first time rising Austin star Shakey Graves will appear onstage at the fest; it's also the first appearance for Los Lobos.
Old Settler's began as a one-day bluegrass festival in 1987 and has grown into a premier, four-day folk music and camping event. In 2017, more than 30 award-winning artists will play across the fest's four stages, and there are more additions to come.
Early-bird tickets, which offer savings up to 28 percent, go on sale Tuesday, November 15. Options are four-day with camping, three-day with camping, three-day without camping, and the all-inclusive platinum pass. Daytripper tickets (single-day admission) go on sale December 15.
