With new dates and a new location, we welcome back Backwoods Music Festival in 2018 with a roaring fanfare.

Moving from central Oklahoma to Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas, the home of Wakarusa until 2015, Backwoods is laying its claim to the southern festival circuit with a massive lineup touching down April 20-22, 2018. Sticking to its roots, Backwoods blends jam and electronica with a varied bill that covers some of our favorite acts here at The Untz.

Topping the bill are jamtronica hybrids STS9 and The Floozies, who are joined by fellow hybrid acts Emancipator, Papadosio, SunSquabi, The Werks, and Zoogma. On the heavy bass side, fans will be treated to FIGURE along with The Untz Festival alums Space Jesus and Yheti.

Taking over the late night space are our dear friends at ThazDope Records, who will be celebrating their 4th anniversary on 4/20. They're bringing along beardthug, Danny Grooves, Eazybaked, LoDurr, Smith., Smokestax, and of course label head honcho Spankalicious will rock his own set.

A number of local and regional favorites fill out the rest of the bill with acts like Fractal Sky, Ryan Viser, Exit 9, and more.

Tickets are on sale now at and we are excitedly awaiting the next round of artist additions.
