Headlining this year's festival is Lubriphonic hailing from the windy city of Chicago. Simmering and intense, with chops to spare, Lubriphonic's live performances create a spicy dish that is guaranteed to cure what ails you. The members of Lubriphonic have individually toured with artists as diverse as Koko Taylor, Buddy Miles, Otis Rush, The Ohio Players, and Lenny Kravitz. Lubriphonic fuses old-school soul music with hip shaking rock'n'roll and searing improvisation.
Also, playing the Main Stage is Trevor Green. Thriving on the live performance, his stage setup resembles a musical playground, where he finds himself surrounded by guitars, a lap slide, mandolin, banjo, yidaki (didgeridoos), stomp box, and various percussion instruments. Green creates a sound that encompasses the genres of world, funk, folk, and jam rock. Not to be missed, is Zonky Tonk Zydeco, a fun, well-endowed band dedicated to providing their audiences with exhilaratingly hip musical presentations. The joint efforts of this highly entertaining group cover a host of infectious rhythmic and melodic sounds stemming from the bowels of Louisiana culture. More music includes Taos musicians the Brent Berry Band, local band Roscoe and other MontezumaCounty favorites.
This year, a separate Zuke's Dog Zone will be available for dog owners and leashed dogs to enjoy the festival atmosphere, free of charge. No dogs will be permitted in the main festival grounds. Tent camping and RV camping without hook-ups will be available in JoeRowellPark the night of the festival for an additional $5 per person.
