Other artists in the lineup include Darlingside, Town Mountain, The Brother Brothers, Skyway Man and many more to come.

With multiple stages and a wide variety of genres, Nelsonville Music Festival will feature over 60 musical artists from national, regional and local acts. The festival will also have artisan vendors, food, a beer garden and kids’ activities.
