It’s time once again for the annual Old Settler’s Music Festival, going down from Thursday, Apr. 10 – Sunday, Apr. 13 at Salt Lick Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch. This festival has been going strong since 1987, and has maintained its down-home, friendly, Texas vibe. You’ll hear lots of music, eat awesome food, attend workshops, camp, let the kids play in the youth area and kick back with plenty of cold beers (if you want).

According to the Old Settler’s Music Festival’s website, they’re “more craft beer than light beer,” and they’d rather kick back than crowd-surf. Sound like a good time to us!

Ticket prices range from $35 – $530 depending on whether or not you get a single-day pass, camping passes or platinum passes. More info on pricing here. Kids 12 and under are FREE with a paying adult.


The fest features four stages of music that will play all day everyday! The lineup includes artists such as Parker Millsap, Wood & Wire, Shovels & Rope, North Mississippi Allstars, Bob Schneider, Shinyribs, Sarah Jarosz, The Black Lillies and many, many more!

Clearly, lots of fun to be had for the parents. But what about those kids?



Kids Stuff will be going on throughout the fest at both the Salt Lick and Camp Ben. Activities include an entire inflatable playground, a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, rock climbing, arts and crafts, environmental education workshops and a nationally recognized youth musical competition for ages 18 and younger. Camp Ben has a playground and is home to Onion Creek, where kids can wade and swim! Most activities are free, some charge a fee. Read more about Kids Stuff here.

So get your camping gear ready and make plans to get out of town (kind of) and relax with some great music.
