Sara Watkins played there last year with the Decemberists. Couldn't ask for a more spectacular venue.

And it gets better. Friday night before the festival, Wilco, Blitzentrapper, and Megafaun will be performing for "Folk Friday."

Too bad I already passed on the festival and bought tickets to see Wilco and the Avett Brothers the week before.
