11 a.m. Mulberry Mountain. $65-$275.

If Wakarusa starts off the summer with a Dionysian howl of dazzling lights and dilated pupils, with booming bass and glitchy jam-tronica and proggy guitars going "weedly-weedly," the Harvest Music Festival welcomes in autumn with a much mellower, largely acoustic vibe.

Sure, Waka's got a good amount of folksy offerings, but I doubt you'll find so much as a solitary sequencer at Harvest, which has a huge lineup of folk, bluegrass, country and old-timey, with plenty of rock, funk and assorted other stuff mixed in.

The headliners include, of course, Yonder Mountain String Band, but also The Mickey Hart Band, Leftover Salmon, The North Mississippi Allstars, Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, The Gourds and more. Arkansas is well represented with, among others, Tyrannosaurus Chicken, Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass, Mountain Sprout and Don't Stop Please.
