Live Music & Entertainment

Branch Fest is very excited to feature over 28 musical acts between 2 stages with some extended sets (over 2 hrs) for many of our feat. artists at the top of the bill. Plus with no conflicting music schedules, you actually get to see all the music you pay for! That’s right – the only thing stopping you is your own limitations, cause we party into the late-night. Just make sure you enjoy yourself responsibly, stay hydrated and wear some hearing protection, alright? 🙂

We’re also spicing things up all weekend long with collaborative artists-at-large, known as The Branches, that will be making special appearances on stage and elsewhere as well as many other forms of live entertainment going on across the concert fields, vendor areas and campgrounds! Expect some spectacular firework displays, fire, LED and other mesmerizing flow performances by Spiral Sparks Fire Arts (see video),  painting & arts, glass blowing and much more! And, of course, there will always be opportunities to make your own forms of live entertainment with the number of activities we offer. More details and schedules coming soon!

Many Camping Options

Nothing truly completes a good back-to-nature experience like camping out for the weekend, and there certainly aren’t any shortages of ways to do it at Branch Fest! Whether you want to camp next to your car, bring your RV or just pick a good spot in the woods to pitch a tent, we have options for just about everyone. Some of those options even include sites with direct line-of-sight of the main stage in our VIP camping areas!

With the sheer number of activities and attractions right around the corner from your campsite, there’s really just no better way to experience this festival. Best of all, when you choose to camp for the weekend, we’ll throw in Thursday for free! All campgrounds open at 12 PM on Thursday, May 30th (but no lining up beforehand); so, come claim your spot (first come, first serve) and let’s get this party started early! There’ll be live music and a lot more – even then! Campers can also stick around until 12 PM on Monday, June 3rd, just in case some people need some extra recovery time…
