This stage also includes an exclusive priority viewing area and backstage patio bar for guests with VIP tickets (who also receive express entry to the venue). Acoustic artists will perform indoors at the Carousel Stage, situated in the historic Carousel building - which features a vintage soda fountain. Friday's headliners include Local Natives, Lucinda Williams, Moses Sumney and Houndmouth. On Saturday, you'll hear Jackson Browne, Heartless Bastards, The Barr Brothers and Linda Perhacs. Also performing at the festival are Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Jamestown Revival, The Lone Bellow, Bootstraps, Little Hurricane, The Wild Reeds, The Far West, and many more.

Tickets to Way Over Yonder cost $41 for Friday, $51 for Saturday, or $86 for a two-day pass.
