Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Yadaloo Music & Arts Festival 2020 will transition to an online event. The festival will be on Saturday, September 19, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. CST and will include more than 20 of country music’s most talented local, regional and national acts.
“Our first Yadaloo Festival was a great success and while it makes us sad that we’re not able to offer the same experience this year, we’re very excited to give country music fans a way to safely enjoy a night of both home-grown and nationally-recognized talented musicians,” said organizer Susan Erwin Prowse, co-founder and owner of Big Red Dog Productions. “We’re proud to offer a safe and unique experience this year while still supporting these artists who have taken a huge hit throughout this coronavirus crisis.”
Yadaloo has teamed up with CWP Productions to offer a real-time, live virtual experience for viewers anywhere in the world. A portion of the proceeds will go to Yadaloo’s nonprofit partner, City Connections Inc., which is working to commit one million meals to needy Arkansas families this year.
The lineup includes Craig Campbell, Erin Enderlin, Texas Hill, Blane Howard, Lance Carpenter, Charlotte Leigh, Hannah Bethel, Bree Ogden, Ryan Harmon, Cory Jackson, Cliff & Susan, Terri Hendrix & Lloyd Maines, Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band, Ten Penny Gypsy, Ashtyn Barbaree, Pamela Hopkins, Midnight South, Lauren Richmond, The Going Jessies, Jon Bailey, Joey Barrett and Townsend.
Yadaloo was named the Best New Festival of the Year by the Arkansas Festival & Events
