Backwoods unveils initial 2018 line-up, announces move to former Wakarusa grounds

When Wakarusa announced the cancellation of its annual event due to legal/financial woes, faithful attendees were heartbroken. No longer would they be mining for quartz in the rivers twisting through Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains, stumbling upon waterfalls around every bend, or taking in scenic views of Mulberry Mountain. Wakarusa would become nothing more than a storied legend.

Wakarusa attendees can now revel in the fact that another bass-and-jam-heavy production company has picked up the baton to showcase three full days of “good music, good people, good times.” Such is the driving philosophy behind Backwoods at Mulberry Mountain — which has uprooted it’s gathering place in Shroud, Oklahoma to Middle America’s storied venue for it’s third annual event — taking place April 20–24, 2018.

Backwoods has earned a reputation of showcasing some of the country’s top rising electronic talent, alongside nationally-renowned artists, stunning visual production, and now has the shiny allure of a gem venue. Included in the phase one line-up are headliners STS9 and The Floozies, alongside jam band heavy weights Papadosio, All Good Records‘ very own Sunsquabi, and electro-funk rising stars Zoogma. The bill include a heavy helping of bass music with Figure, Space Jesus, Yheti, and a very special late night series from ThazDope Records, and more.

Attendees can also take advantage of activities such as helicopter rides, hoop workshops, yoga classes, interactive art installations, and a vast array of food and shopping vendors. Limited pre-sale tickets are on sale now, starting at $184 with the option of pre-party and RV upgrades.
