January might be a little chilly outside, but it is not too cold for the First Annual Ozark Mountain Music Festival to be held INDOORS at the Basin Park Hotel on the last weekend of January.
Touted as Eureka Springs’ next great festival, the Ozark Mountain Music Festival will focus around Bluegrass / Indie Folk with a festival lineup that includes multiple stages and lively music all day long, just indoors. Jack Moyer, Manager of the Basin Park since 1996 commented, “The Basin Park Hotel has always been at the edge of all great music start ups from the Eureka Springs Blues Festival, New Years Eve with Jimmy Thackery, Eureka Springs Mardi Gras, The Cate Brothers, Chris Duarte or when the “the Band” reunited to play a ten-year reunion show in the Barefoot Ballroom. We are excited to host this ‘next great thing’ with the start of the Ozark Mountain Music Festival to which we expect will be an annual event for many years to come.” Moyer went on to say a key to establishing the event will be both in providing great music on multiple stages, using regional talent whose genre is Indie Folk and inventing a path where the festival style atmosphere makes the Basin Park Hotel abuzz with activity while attendees enjoy all access passes, overnight at the hotel and a have an atmosphere that encourages eating, drinking and dancing in one central location, an indoor festival grounds per se.
The Ozark Mountain Music Festival will begin Friday, January 24th at 6PM and will continue with at least 11 acts until Sunday’s Bloody Mary Morning Show. Passes will be affordable and will feature regional favorites HonkySuckle, 3Penny Acre, National Park Radio, and SxRex as well as other acts contacted and to be announced soon.
Room bundles for two attendees include two-nights lodging and two (2) all access passes and begin at $275. Festival All Access Passes are $45. For further information or online room sales guests are encouraged to visit www.EurekaSpringsOnline.com.
