Wakarusa 2012 just announced their daily schedule, utilizing the JamBase platform. As May 31 to June 3 draws near, Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, AR is becoming more and more enticing by the day.
With five performance stages, there’s plenty to be seen by all at this four-day camping festival. Thursday kicks off with the headliners ALO, Railroad Earth, Weir, Robinson and Green Acoustic Trio and Pretty Lights. Going into to the wee hours of the morning, you can see Savoy, MartyParty, NiT GRiT, VibesquaD and Papadosio.
Friday shakes it up on the Main Stage with the Royal Family Ball featuring Soulive and Lettuce, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros and The Avett Brothers. You can catch Blitzen Trapper and Umphrey’s McGee’s first set of the weekend in the Revival Tent on Friday night as well. As if that isn’t whole lotta goodness, Friday’s late-night performances include Ghostland Observatory, MiM0SA, Love and Light, Michal Menert and more.

By Saturday you’re only halfway into the weekend when Fitz and The Tantrums, Slightly Stoopid, Umphrey’s (second set) and Primus rock the Main Stage. If you aren’t tired yet, why not catch some late-night sets with Beats Antique, Big Gigantic, Opiuo, Paper Diamond, RJD2 or Green Velvet?
By the time Sunday rolls around, it’s hard to believe that there is even more to be seen. With the Main Stage closed, you can catch SOJA, Emmitt-Nershi Band, Keller Williams, Matisyahu, EOTO and The Floozies throughout the day on various other stages.
Tickets are still available for $179.00 Don’t forget your camping pass, too!
