An Austin spring tradition since 1987, the festival will take over the Salt Lick BBQ Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch April 16-19.

Featuring bluegrass, Americana, alt-country, roots and more, Old Settler’s will also welcome Sam Bush, Hot Rize, Dailey & Vincent, The Infamous Stringdusters, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, Green River Ordinance, Pokey LaFarge and Israel Nash.

A few of the festival’s favorite acts will return as well, including Langhorne Slim, Shinyribs, Jitterbug Vipers, and MilkDrive.

If you want to camp, now is the time to lay your money (or plastic) down.  Camping passes for the last three years all sold out early and organizers say fewer such offerings will be available this year. A four-day camping wristband starts at $250, which is nearly 20 percent less than the gate price. Three-day camping passes are priced at $205.  If you want to skip the camping experience entirely, three-day non-camping passes are priced at $140.
