George Jones, Flaming Lips & Neko Case Headline Nelsonville Music Festival

Where can you hear the legendary George Jones, the trip-tastic Flaming Lips, and the beautiful Neko Case all in one place? Typically only on your MP3 player, but if you want to see them all live you’re in luck! The Nelsonville Music Festival will be returning for its seventh installment next month and there are still tickets left.

Since 2005 the Nelsonville Music Festival has been one of the up and coming musical events in Ohio. Featuring both international and local talent, the festival is small in size but big on character. In 2009 the festival turned a corner when Willie Nelson performed and secured a place on the national stage for Nelsonville.

From country to indie rock to folk to pyschedelic rock, the Nelsonville Music Festival will have something for everyone. Over the course of three days you will get to see everything from solo artists to a marching band that thinks it is a rock band! Arts, crafts and much more will also be on sale and exhibit at the event.

The event starts on Friday May 13th with George Jones being the headliner of the night, the festivisty continue with the Flaming Lips headlining Saturday night and then finally concludes on Sunday with Neko Case. Also performing are Yo La Tengo, the Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson, Justin Townes Earle, Over the Rhine and many, many more.
