Hoxeyville Music Festival 2010
August 20th, 21st, and 22nd

By Greg Molitor

Hoxeyville has been on my radar for each of the two years previous, but for some reason or another, I haven’t been able to attend. Not this year! Third time is a charm, indeed!

Words cannot describe my excitement for Hoxeyville 2010... but words are my job... so I’ll give it a shot!

First, what a lineup! Hoxeyville 2010 pulled the deepest and most diverse lineup of any Michigan music festival of the year, hands down. All of Michigan’s heavy-hitters will be playing including Greensky Bluegrass, The Macpodz, My Dear Disco, Steppin’ In It, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, The Ragbirds…want me to keep going?!? If you add the intimate performances by national artists including The Rhythm Devils, Keller Williams, KDTU, Steve Kimock & Crazy Engine, The New Deal, and Great American Taxi…the lineup speaks for itself. This is the place to be August 20th, 21st and 22nd. Don’t miss out on Michigan’s best opportunity to rage in 2010!

Hoxeyville 2010 has plenty offer in addition to the fabulous lineup of musicians scheduled to play. Contained within the serene Manistee National Forest, The 85+ acre Hoxeyville festival ground is located conveniently near various mountain biking trails, the scenic Pine River, and Kestelwoods restaurant and party store, all just a few minutes’ walk from the grounds. As for vending, Hoxeyville’s Vendor Village will focus on local crafts, foods, and artisan to help promote the Michigan community. And as always, Hoxeyville will feature a Disc Golf Course designed by Stephanai Myers of Disc Golf Michigan! Hoxeyville 2010 is truly a unique event created through the love of music and community. Join me for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

  2. Huh? He is mentioned in the artist line-up... This is a preview, we can't talk about all of the artists in depth in a piece like this. However, rest assured Todd will be covered in the review of the festival.
