About the festival:

Born in 2004 in Lawrence, KS, Wakarusa burst onto the scene with a diverse and eclectic lineup featuring over 70 artists. The 2004 bill piqued the interest of both devout and casual music fans alike. Fans that made the trip to Wakarusa left with unforgettable stories of the music and the beautiful surroundings of the Lawrence area. This yearÂ’s event will be no different. Mulberry Mountain offers all the amenities of a well developed campground and is home to one of the most beautiful festival sites.

Wakarusa differs from other festivals of its kind in that it strives to keep the music at the center of the experience. Although camping, vendors, and many other attractions add to the event, the music is non-stop and at the forefront. Patrons can come for one day or all 4!
