The Mother Hips will return with the tenth iteration of their Hipnic festival this May, and the event’s lineup, curated by the band and (((folkYEAH!))) founder Britt Govea, was recently revealed.
Set to play the three-day festival are Jackie Greene, Son Volt’s Jay Farrar, Flamin’ Groovies, Little Wings, The Tyde, GospelbeacH, The Jayhawks’ Marc Olson, Meg Baird, Midnight North, Scott Law and Ross Jams’ Cosmic Twang, Jason Crosby, Mapache, Johnny Irion and more, with additional acts to be added. See the full artist list below.
“Hipnic was started by us and (((folkYEAH!))) – it’s a small, family-friendly festival that started as a kind of response to the bigger summer music festivals in California,” says Mother Hips frontman Tim Bluhm. ” We wanted to host an event that was laid back, uncrowded, not hot or dusty, and with only music that we like to listen to. It has taken on the feeling of a grand rendezvous more so than a music festival. This one is a red letter day, being the tenth anniversary.”
Hipnic X is slated for May 18–20 in Big Sur, CA. Tickets and more information can be found here.
