Just like that ticket sales for this year’s Wakarusa Festival – the 10th – exploded with the partial announcement earlier this week of the lineup. Widespread Panic, Of Monsters and Men and Yonder Mountain String Band, to name three.

“And that was only a third of my lineup,” says promoter Brett Mosiman. “I think we’re going to sell out in advance this year.”

“It’s all done,” Mosiman says. “We were 95 percent booked by Halloween. We’ve got about 120 bands to announce and there are about 25 others we have to sign.

Screen shot 2013-01-04 at 11.32.19 AMSo we’ll have 150 bands on five stages, with 175 sets over four and one half days. For roughly $150 a ticket, it’s a steal.”
