*These are acts that I’ve yet to see live and I’ve REALLY been loving lately, so I’m extra excited to see them on the lineup. mvyradio plans to be behind the scenes at the festival as we have been the past few years, recording as much as we can and sharing it with those who cannot attend! But as someone who’s been to a few of these, I’d go if you like even a few of the artists above… it’s an amazing festival… read my thoughts on it HERE.

  1. I saw the Civil Wars live in Athens, Ga in February. They were fantastic and the crowd was really into them. I would see them again in a heart beat. I would really like to see the Secret Sisters.

    Look at me, I am commenting again! :)

  2. Yay! Love the comments…

    That’s awesome that you got a chance to see them so early on… I have a feeling they may get pretty ‘big’. I can’t wait to see them live. I remember seeing them live on one of the late night shows and being like, WOW.
