Wakarusa Music & Camping Festival 2007

featuring Widespread Panic, Medeski Martin & Wood, Yonder Mountain String Band, and more TBA

Clinton State Park

In 2003, the inaugural Wakarusa Festival was met with open arms-and skepticism. But with each passing year and tens of thousands of people through the gate, Lawrence's most ambitious event establishes the kind of staying power that it promised in the first place. Headliners like Widespread Panic and Ben Harper were once but wee daydreams, but this year they'll be backed by a jam-heavy lineup that also sports top draws like Yonder Mountain String Band, Medeski, Martin & Wood and Michael Franti and Spearhead. Toss in more than 100 more rock, jam, bluegrass, funk, alt-country zydeco, jazz, blues and experimental bands and you'll begin to understand why showering and sleeping are way overrated.Schedule: ¢ Read our picks for this year's best bets¢ View the full schedule of events online or via our mobile edition to set txt msg or email reminders for individual shows.4-Day Tickets ($119) and VIP ($435) for Wakarusa 2007 are available via wakarusa.com.
