“I’m thrilled to be back in Jackson, a town that holds a very special place in my heart, for the second annual Horseshoe Music Festival. I’m excited to have so many friends getting together to play the music we all love. I feel it’s only fitting to do a tribute to Dad as part of the Americana set this year. Honoring him and the music he pioneered will be healing for both myself and the fans who love him.” - Duane Betts

Specifically curated for the local community but also designed as a destination event for music lovers, Horseshoe will entertain and satiate fans’ desires to the highest caliber. Opening with a land acknowledgment and native dance ceremony, those that were there before us are always honored first. The White Sage Market (open to the public daily) will offer open-air shopping with artisan-made goods and vintage fashion. Medicine Wheel Wellness will provide a weekend-long retreat.

Daily yoga, sound healing, and meditation will also be provided onsite, as well as massage, acupuncture, and IV therapy. An over-the-top, interactive farm-to-table affair will grace the interior of the High N’ Wicked Gambler’s Lounge, featuring live fire grills and thoughtfully curated themed tapas using ingredients provided by local farmers, paired with craft cocktails. Horseshoe literally has something for everyone!

“Horseshoe is an idea brought to life after many years of touring and seeing what was out there in festival land. I wanted to create something unique and intimate but with the highest quality of music, food made with love, fashion, and decor for our community. Duane and I believe in a life of balance, so adding the wellness aspect completed the circle of what is important to us. This boutique affair is a one-of-a-kind experience for both the artists who perform and the audience who attend. There was so much magic made during this beautiful weekend last year, we can’t wait to do it again.” - Lisa Hadley Betts
