Ogden Festival of Acoustic Music returns to their regular tradition, kicking off summer June 3-5, for the 14th annual Ogden Music Festival at Weber County’s historic Fort Buenaventura.

“September 2021 was great, just what we needed in the midst of the pandemic, and it will feel so good to get back to our regular schedule,” says festival co-director Reba Nissen.

This year’s lineup, announced last week, is full of big-name artists: Sam Bush, Amy Helm, The Travelin’ McCourys, The Grateful Ball, Flor De Toloache, The Brothers Comatose, Missy Raines & Allegheny, Carolyn Wonderland, AJ Lee and Blue Summit, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, Big Richard, Stillhouse Junkies, The Proper Way, and David Burchfield & The Fire Guild. “Tweeners,” seasoned local artists that play between the main acts, will be announced soon.

The three-day weekend music festival has on-site camping, workshops, activities, and more along with non-stop performances from award-winning artists that represent a wide range of music genres including bluegrass, Americana, blues, folk and mariachi.

OFOAM continues to embrace diversity and inclusion, focusing on showcasing women and artists of color, groups often underrepresented at music festivals. Ogden Music Festival also has the distinction of being family-friendly. It isn’t often when the words music festival and children go hand in hand but OFOAM offers ages 16 and under free admission, a Kid Zone with games and arts and crafts, and an Instrument Petting Zoo featuring the Raychel LeBlanc memorial WILL & WAY, an instrument and instruction program that launched last year.

Another draw for festivalgoers from all over Utah and out-of-state visitors is the on-site camping, which provides a true festival experience. Late-night campground jams can be heard amongst new friends, old and young. Also appealing is the conjunction of other art forms like art vendors, some of the best local food and beverages, and workshops featuring mainstage artists.

Nissen says: “If you haven’t been yet, you will be bringing something new and different to this year’s festival just by being YOU. Bring your instrument(s) and jam in the campground after the main stage. Consider joining Team OFOAM and volunteering to help. You’ll meet a lot of our amazing returning volunteers and become part of something you can be proud of. ”

Tickets and artist info are available at OFOAM.org. The early bird ticket sale ends April 19 at midnight. Kids 16 and younger are free. Volunteers are needed and can get a three-day pass for serving two three-hour shifts during the festival weekend. Details for admissions, camping, volunteering and all other festival info can be found at OFOAM.org.
