Past performers at the festival have included the Sights, Prussia, Frontier Ruckus, Secret Twins, Fred Thomas, the High Strung, Chris Bathgate, Child Bite, Lightning Love, Great Lakes Myth Society, Deastro, Champions of Breakfast, Cains & Abels, Matt Jones, Drunken Barn Dance, the Juliets, Silverghost, Bad Indians, In Tall Buildings, Charlie Slick, Misty Lyn & the Big Beautiful, Our Brother the Native, Deadbeat Beat, Starling Electric, Charles Trees, the Mighty Narwhale, Jim Roll, and many more.
