It’s back and it’s better than ever. Hangtown Music Festival is set for Oct. 20–23 at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California, and with it comes some of the best performers in the world when it comes to roots, rock, funk, reggae, folk and so much more. Host band Railroad Earth will play three total nights, and they’ll be joined by top billers like Medeski Martin & Wood, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (who will be performing Prince’s Dirty Mind featuring Angelo from Fishbone!), The Infamous Stringdusters, The Wood Brothers, Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers and so many others. Beyond the great music (including late-night shows!), there will be yoga and meditation classes, costume themes, pumpkin carving, Sierra Nevada Hoptoberfest and an arts and crafts fair with vendors and nonprofits, plus plenty of food options and more.
