Friends. We can't express how stoked we are to share this first round of lineup announcements with you. And this is just the beginning. We've got even more badass stuff to come. Not only will we be exploring new musical boundaries this year with a fresher than ever cast of characters, we'll also be featuring all the other classic DIO fun: portrits, da pooool, food and beer at its finest when on a mountain top do it ourselves, and more. So git yer tix...! Presale runs 'till March 1st.
this solo performance from songwriting legend Will Oldham is pretty much the exact reason why we love our amphitheater stage so much... it's as good as it gets for diving deep into an artist's expression... so before you get ready to dance to Soul Jelly late night... grab a friend, a lover, a partner,,, sit down, relax and enjoy the raw passion of this artist we call Bonnie Prince Billy.. stoked...

The man who acts under the name Will Oldham and sings and composes under the name Bonnie "Prince" Billy has, over the past quarter-century, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema. With his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity; his brilliance has captivated fans and made Bonny one of our most influential and beloved songsmiths. Recent projects in 2012 include Now Heres My Plan (EP), Will Oldham on Bonnie "Prince" Billy (An Autobiography edited by Alan Licht, published by Norton), as well as two singles; Billy F. Gibbons/ Matt Sweeney & Bonny Billy "Oh Well" b/w "Storms", and Dawn McCarthy & Bonny Billy "Christmas Eve Can Kill" b/w "Walkin the Dog". In 2013, Bonny released a new full length record of duets with Dawn McCarthy on Drag City.
