Backwoods 2016When most festivals say "there's something for everyone," they're lying. Everyone but Backwoods Music Festival. The annual bash returning to Tatanka Ranch in Stroud, Oklahoma from September 1-4 really does have something for everyone. From heavy electronic music, to soaring folk, to disco grooves, and out of this world, mind-melting bass, Backwoods is going big Labor Day Weekend, and there's still time for you to get in on the action.

Today, the festival revealed its giant schedule, and fans can now pore over the layout for more than a month getting ready for their unforgettable weekend. Plan wisely, because there are eight stages from which to choose. Motherland will host the big headliners like NERO (Live), Big Gigantic, moe., and Nahko & Medicine for the People. is proud to be promoting The Meadow stage, which hosts heavy-hitters like Audien, Manic Focus, Chill Harris, and VibeSquaD (on his farewell tour). There's the special Thursday pre-party featuring Desert Dwellers, Space Jesus, Esseks, and more, and as a super memorial for Pumpkin, Friday afternoon after Dreamers Delight will feature an entire set of silence in honor of Nicholas Alvarado, who was killed in an automobile crash in late March.

There's The Island, Diskoportal, The Globe Theater, and Kumbaya, all housing incredible acts. The ThazDope Records crew will be hosting the Campground stage all weekend long, with acts like Yheti, Psydell, Plunkie, Alejo, ToadfaceLoDurr, and a bevy of live painters all curated by Spankalicious. Then there's finally the Elevate VIP Lounge which will feature exclusive events like dinner with GoldFish, among others.

Feast your eyes upon this stunning schedule, and don't fret--there really is something for everyone. Tickets and VIP packages still available at
