Old Settler's Music Festival, which features the best in bluegrass, folk and Americana music, is returning in 2015 for its 28th year. Located just south of Austin at the Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch in Driftwood, Old Settler's announced the camping and music fest will be held April 16-19.
Though the full lineup has yet to be released, Old Settler's has confirmed bluegrass legends and Americana favorites. Langhorne Slim & the Law, The Mavericks, Sam Bush, Shinyribs, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Defibulators, Dailey & Vincent and more are slated to perform.
As more local festivals embrace the pack-'em-in mentality, Old Settler's continues the tradition of catering to its fans. The festival will be selling fewer camping passes this year in order "to make the campground more comfortable for everybody" and will be encouraging carpooling to eliminate some of the cars at the festival.
Passes are currently on sale here. Prices are as follows: $448 for an Early Bird Platinum Pass, $220 for a 4-day wristband and camping pass, $205 for a 3-day wristband and camping pass, and $140 for 3-day wristband without camping pass.
