Wakarusa Music Festival 2013

Genres: Alternative, Blues, DJ, Electronica, Folk, Pop, Rock, Reggae, Americana, Bluegrass, Dance, Indie, Jam, Singer Songwriter and World
Location: Ozark, AR

The Wakarusa Music Festival is a premiere, grassroots event in the nationwide outdoor music scene attracting folks from all 50 U.S. states and beyond. Wakarusa differs from other festivals of its kind in that it strives to keep music at the center of the experience. Although camping, vendors, the beauty of Mother Nature and many other attractions add to the event, the music is non-stop and always at the forefront.

It has hosted legendary musicians such as Wilco, Ben Harper, The Flaming Lips, Sam Bush, Cake, My Morning Jacket, The String Cheese Incident, and so many more. Two ReverbNation artists will be selected to perform at this year’s festival.

Selected Artists Receive:
- Compensation for their performance
- Great exposure playing in front of more than 15,000 festival attendees

Renowned as one of the most scenic and intimate music festivals in the country, Telluride Blues & Brews takes place in the world-famous resort town of Telluride, Colorado, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Blues & Brews is a three-day celebration of live music and microbrews held at Telluride Town Park, nestled in the valley of stunning 13,000-foot mountain peaks. The festival offers an eclectic mix of live blues, funk, jam band, rock, gospel and soul performances, and some of the best microbreweries in the country, with a wide variety of food and craft vendors, children’s activities, late night shows, and much more.

ReverbNation artists are being considered for performance slots at the 20th Annual Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, performing alongside some the biggest names in music.
