It’s a genre-defying, continent-linking festival where fiercely independent, creative troubadours and master instrumentalists from Mauritania, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ethiopia, the United States and Canada celebrate diverse traditions, deep roots and cool grooves.
The festival is comprised of mainstage concerts and collaborative workshops. The mainstage concerts take place in the evenings Thursday - Sunday. The workshops and other concerts take place on smaller stages throughout the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Most of the mainstage artists also participate in a workshop or two.
Other site activities include all the sights, sounds and smells of the festival, which is like an idyllic small town for a fabulous long weekend. Social activists, stuff kids love to do, a lantern parade, culinary delights, tree-shaded beer garden, an award-winning environmental program and artisan market.
