In its 8th year, Otherfest remains dedicated to serving the Delta with the first and only low-admission yet high-quality, all original music festival. On Saturday, September 21st, Otherfest takes a new permanent home nearer to Cleveland on Highway 61 North just outside of the Cleveland city limits, moving from its previous home in Rosedale at River Resort. The new home will include all of the usual Otherfest perks such as free camping and food/beverage vending. For the first time, this year, Cleveland’s Art In The Alley will host the festival’s artist vending. The new home will also boast a brand new 35 foot stage easily seen from the legendary Highway 61. You can’t miss it.
Bands slated for this year’s Otherfest include Quiet Company, an Austin, Texas band who has taken home several honors including Album of the Year and Best Overall Band at the Austin Music Awards. Also on the line-up are rising Nashville blues-rock band, The Delta Saints, who finishes up a 2 month would tour in August. Long time regional favorites Adam Faucett and the Tall Grass from Little Rock and Callooh! Callay! from Tuscaloosa join Cleveland local bands Bill Abel, A Scarlet Empire, Argiflex, Fides, Amalgamation, and Mississippi “super group” Paperclip Scientists, whose members include previous members of Geronimo Rex, session jazz singer Adib Owens-Sabir, guitarist Daniel Karlish, drummer Ryan Rogers and Delta State University professor turned percussionist Ky Johnston.
In total, 18 bands from across the southeast will take over the Otherfest festival grounds on two stages from noon until midnight on September 21st for the going festival admission rate of $15, rain or shine.
