MULBERRY MOUNTAIN HARVEST MUSIC FESTIVAL
9 a.m., Ozark. $65-$140.


For the third year, hippies, folkies and college kids will ascend Mulberry Mountain north of Ozark for three days of music and mountain decadence (New Belgium Ale is the primary sponsor). Befitting the mountain setting, headliners come heavily in the jam-folk variety. For more than a dec-ade, Leftover Salmon has been traveling behind self-described “polyethnic Cajun slamgrass,” and steadily endearing itself to mono-ethnic college kids who like to go barefoot, or if necessary, wear those elaborate sport sandals. Ditto for Big Smith, except the Springfield, Mo., band of cousins self-identifies with Ozark hillbilly as a genre. If watching pickin' and grinnin' isn't your idea of a good time, you probably shouldn't go. But if it is, Bob Marley's former backing band the Wailers will be rocking steady and North Carolina's Avett Brothers will be doing Americana-tinged indie rock. Other featured acts include New Monsoon, Umphrey's McGee, Split Lip Rayfield, the Hackensaw Boys, Shannon Wurst and Charliehorse. If they tire of the music, festival-goers have 650 acres to tramp through. There's even a waterfall and a swimming hole. Ticket prices include the cost of camping and parking.
