Nestled in the heart of Northwest Michigan’s Manistee National Forest, Hoxeyville is a testament to pure North Country peace as well as a good ol’ down home hootenanny. Bringing together some of the most talented artists in Michigan and beyond, the 10th annual Hoxeyville promises to be one for the record books. 

Known for the spontaneity and creativity of his live performances, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers draw frequently from classical, jazz, bluegrass, folk, Motown, rock, blues, and jam band musical traditions with upbeat songwriting and seamless improvisations contained within.

Though the term can often be overused, ‘super group’ is the only way to describe “swampadelic rockers” 7 Walkers. The young band features former Grateful Dead drummer, Bill Kreutzmann along with renowned guitarist / vocalist Papa Mali, legendary New Orleans bassist George Porter Jr. and multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard. The group’s lyrics are provided by longtime Grateful Dead lyricist and Jerry Garcia collaborator, Robert Hunter.

Kalamazoo’s own Greensky Bluegrass have been gaining national attention after releasing their most recent album, Handguns and continuously touring the country performing to sold out crowds. As their name might suggest, Greensky Bluegrass utilizes traditional bluegrass instruments, as the music that they make with them is anything but conventional considering Rolling Stone noted Greensky “is representing the genre for a whole new generation.”

Northern Michigan’s own Seth & May have carved a unique niche as conscious, soul-stirring songsters. Their truth-telling and inspiring songs have garnered them a huge following across Michigan and nationwide as they tour behind the release of their latest CD New Flower, a dozen songs deeply influenced by their cross-global trek to Ethiopia.

Keeping with its founders’ original intent, the Hoxeyville Music Festival offers attendees an intimate musical experience among natural wooded beauty featuring the privacy of its spacious 20’ x 30’ wooded campsites and a fan-friendly attendance capacity of 5000. The festival’s 85-acre vast campgrounds offer enough room for everyone to camp and live just a short walk to the concert grounds. 

Hoxeyville is offering a limited amount of Early Bird tickets available now at $140 via Each festival ticket includes music and camping for the entire weekend. 

Additionally, patrons are able to take in a day of music by selecting single day tickets. Music for the entire day on Friday and Saturday runs $45 and $35 for Sunday; these passes include parking but do not include camping.

As in years past, the festival site also features a disc golf course with a glow course, a variety of VIP and quiet camping options, a vendor village and a beer tent with some of the finest regional brews. Complete festival details are available at
