Wakarusa Relocates to Arkansas
The 6th annual Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival will take place at Ozark, ARs Mulberry Mountain from June 4-7. The lauded festival decided to leave its longtime home of Lawrence, KS after repeated issues of profiling against the festival hippie-leaning audience.
You can say cowboys are cool and hippies drool, but not if youre behind the state seal of Kansas, promoter Brett Mosiman told a local paper earlier this year. It is profiling, it is discrimination, it is like saying the black kids cant use the pool.
Tickets will be available from noon tomorrow, December 11, until December 31 for the extremely reasonable price of $79. Past Wakarusa headliners have included Widespread Panic, Ben Harper, String Cheese Incident, Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Govt Mule, John Mayer and Les Claypool. As previously reported, Wakarusa is also part of the new Festival Alliance.
