Wakarusa is pleased to announce the first of three rounds of the 2014 artist lineup. Round one artists include STS9, Umphrey’s McGee, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lettuce, Dr. Dog, Papadosio, Cherub, BoomBox and more. The 11th annual festival will be held June 5-8, 2014 on majestic Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, Arkansas.
“Wakarusa” is a word derived from Native American culture that means "ass-deep". Of course, back then this described the depth of a river. Now, in its 11th year, we have come to know Wakarusa as a way to define the depth of an experience.
Wakarusa is much more than a music and camping festival. Wakarusa is an experience that was created BY music lovers, FOR music lovers. Four days, six stages, over 150 acts, nearly 200 sets of music; never corporate, always progressive. Forever, your home away from home.
