The 3rd Annual Music on the Mountaintop Festival returns to Boone, NC on August 27, and 28, 2010; Expanding with two days of jam packed music, two nights of camping and a stronger emphasis on pressing environmental issues.
Boone, NC – Now in its third year, the eco friendly, Music on the Mountaintop Festival, is scheduled for August 27 and 28, 2010, located in the heart of the high country at the old fairgrounds in Boone, NC.
Music on the Mountaintop is a one of a kind, ecologically driven, large-scale music festival, offering first class entertainment, featuring several national acts, creating an eclectic blend of acoustic funk, folk, Americana and Bluegrass, and most importantly providing educational awareness on current environmental issues. What started as a class project for Appalachian State University Graduate Jimmy Hunt, has grown quickly into one of the largest musical events in the Southeast. Last year, more than 4,000 music fans gathered to enjoy the wide variety of music performed on three stages.
Appalachian Voices is the primary beneficiary for the festival. “A sense of place is important to building the strong environmental ethic needed to protect Appalachian land, air and water,” said Appalachian Voices development and Communications Director Sandra Diaz. “Appalachian Voices is excited to be working with Music on the Mountaintop in promoting Appalachia as a national treasure.”
The 2010 initial lineup includes: Sam Bush, Keller Williams, Railroad Earth, Acoustic Syndicate, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Toubab Krewe, Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Snake Oil Medicine Show, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, The Dirty Guv’nuhs, The Mumbles, Uncle Mountain, The Native Sway, Farm Vegas, BPL, The Moderate, Big daddy Love, Do It to Julia!, and many more.
