10th annual Nelsonville Music Festival
May 29-June 1, 2014
with THE AVETT BROTHERS and many more to be announced
Robbins Crossing at Hocking College
Nelsonville, Ohio


Andrew Bird said of the Nelsonville Music Festival, “It’s the perfect size festival. Any bigger and you’d lose something.” The Nelsonville Music Festival continues to be one of the best in the region and one of the most unique music festivals in the country. Set in the beautiful, rolling hills of Southeast Ohio, this small and intimate festival continues to gain fans who want a music festival with a more personal experience. Catch live music on multiple stages including a small “no-fi” cabin and a picturesque “porch” stage in addition to our main stage. We take pride in offering a warm, accepting environment where local artisans can sell and be recognized for their work, where local, regional and national musicians instill their awe-inspiring talents and festival goers can relax and enjoy the fruits of our regional flavor. The Nelsonville Music Festival offers multiple stages of music all weekend long along with camping on site, kids activities, local art vendors, food, and a beer garden. The Nelsonville Music Festival works with Rural Action and their Appalachian Zero Waste Initiative to be a Zero Waste event, diverting almost 90% of the waste created in 2013! Past performers have included Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, John Prine, The Avett Brothers, Cat Power, Iron & Wine, Andrew Bird, Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, George Jones, Gogol Bordello, M.Ward, and many more.
