Set in the beautiful rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio, The Nelsonville Music Festival continues to be one of the best in the region and one of the most unique festivals in the country. Catch live music on multiple stages from national, regional, and local acts including a small "no-fi" cabin where artists play acoustic sets with no electricity and an intimate audience. The Nelsonville Music Festival partners with Rural Action to make this event one of the "Greenest" festivals around, working to make the festival Zero Waste by using recycling, composting, and education. A large Kids Area includes live performances, workshops, art activities, and more and regional art vendors fill the grounds showcasing and selling their work. There is a campground on the festival grounds as well, offering primitive and RV camping.
Past performers have included The Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, The Avett Brothers, Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, George Jones, Mudhoney, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, The Swell Season, and many more.
