The High Country’s biggest music festival is on pace to meet or exceed last year’s attendance numbers, its founder and director, Jimmy Hunt, said this week. Music on the Mountaintop, taking place Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27, boasts a new location, more campground amenities and more activities than ever before.

The fourth annual Music on the Mountaintop will take place at Grandfather Campground in Foscoe. A two-day pass costs $70, while one-day passes for Friday or Saturday are $40. Festival gates open at noon on Friday.

“I think we’re right on track to do what we did last year,” Hunt said.

Headliners include a combination of household names in jam, bluegrass and funk—Sam Bush, Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, Acoustic Syndicate, Infamous Stringdusters, 7 Walkers with Bill Kreutzmann and Papa Mali and Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band.

Joining them are many other regional favorites who have proven they can draw a High Country crowd: Naked Gods, Native Sway, Sol Driven Train, Do It To Julia, Possum Jenkins, Lazybirds, The Mantras and many others.
