Saturday is Gonna Be a Heater
Saturday is going to be one to remember for the mountain! The Lost Paddle Lake Stage will be rocking all afternoon with The Talismen, Matt Mullins & The Bringdowns, John Inghram Band and Chad Nickell & The Loose Change.

At 4PM Yam Yam light the main stage fire for one hell of a night. The Kind Thieves are on the 6PM slot and always deliver a steller performance for their hometown show. Andy Frasco keeps the party going as the sun goes down. Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade are sure to deliver a memorable show we can’t wait to see. Closing out the festival Saturday night is longtime Mountain Music Festival Alumni Big Something. This Saturday night lineup is a heater that you can’t miss. Single day tickets are now available for those wanting to just come out for one night.
Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade
Saturday night is going to be epic with one of the biggest names to hit the Mountain Music Festival Stage. Colonel Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade (also known as The Les Claypool Frog Brigade) is a musical project with rotating personnel, led by American singer/bassist Les Claypool. It’s super exciting to see The Frog Brigade back out on tour this summer and hitting up a bunch of festivals. It’s even more exciting that they are doing the entire Pink Floyd Animals Album during their set. Plus Roger Waters’ son Harry Waters is in the band on keys while Sean Lennon plays guitar and Paulo Baldi from Cake rocks the drums. Don’t miss this epic performance on Saturday night at 10PM.
