According to festival organizers, the two-day pivot will translate to “no artist overlaps” in the schedule. The new location will also feature art installations and more vendors. Parking will be available on site for $10 per day.

Tickets for the festival go on sale at 10 a.m. May 4 (ticket purchasing info will be announced at that time).
