After a tremendous 2022 campaign that saw thousands of merrymakers flock to Swanzey, NH, Northlands Music and Arts Festival is gathering steam heading into this year's edition. On June 16-17 over twenty-five regional and nationally touring acts will take the stage and captivate attendees with their musical mastery. Northlands Music and Arts Festival has emerged on the scene as one of the summer’s most anticipated boutique gatherings, offering an impressive lineup and unforgettable experiences in the New Hampshire countryside.

Festival organizers are delighted to announce several lineup additions, including Baltimore funk juggernaut Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country, Mihali & Friends, and a mesmerizing set from neo-soul titans The Nth Power featuring artist at large Jen Hartswick. Audiences will also be treated to headlining sets from venerable Colorado jam sextet The String Cheese Incident, Phish bassist Mike Gordon, Goose acoustic offshoot Orebolo, and raucous rockers Andy Frasco and the U.N.

Vermont jam quintet Twiddle, who recently announced an impending indefinite hiatus after eighteen years of sonic sorcery, will also take the stage for one of their final festival appearances for the foreseeable future. Frontman Mihali Savoulidis will also perform with his own act Mihali and Friends. Rounding out the lineup are Too Many Zooz, Kitchen Dwellers, Neighbor, Doom Flamingo, Dogs in a Pile and Karina Rykman.
