Harvest Music Festival Kicks Off on Mulberry Mountain
The 6th Annual Harvest Music Festival kicked off Thursday on Mulberry Mountain in Franklin County.
“A lot of my friends are playing up here. I’m a musician, come here to play,” said Chooch Meisenbacher, a concert goer.
Organizers say 60 bands will perform on four different stages over a three day period.
“I came to Wakarusa here and I loved it, so I had to come back for Harvest, so a lot of friends are coming,” said Tayler Albillar, a concert goer.
Hundreds of people had already gathered on Thursday. Organizers expect more people to show up as the weekend gets closer.
“This weekend we’ll do probably around 6,000 to 7,000 people through the weekend,” said Brett Mosiman, festival director.
Many concert goers camp out in tents. “Mother Nature is in charge and they just always roll with it, so they’re prepared for hot, cold, wet, sunny,” said Mosiman. “You know they’ll endure.”
Kids and adults can enjoy everything from reggae to blue grass and mountain jam music.
“The music has been good so far, so we’re looking forward to the rest of it,” said Meisenbacher.
The festival runs through Saturday night.
