Since the beginning of January, Wakarusa has been dropping lineup bombs culminating with today’s final installment. The String Cheese Incident and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will join previously announced Bassnectar, The Flaming Lips, STS9, and Umphrey’s McGee this summer at Mulberry Mountain in Arkansas. Full lineup in our MFJ Wakarusa 2014 guide.
The decade old festival will run from June 5-8, 2014. Tickets are already on sale. There’s a variety of options including VIP, different campgrounds, and RV spots. A basic 3-day pass is going to run you around $179 with taxes and fees. See more on that here.
Ever wonder how they came up with the name for this festival? We finally got an answer from the official website:
“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.
