Trampled by Turtles, formed by rockers from northern Minnesota in 2003, brought an electrified sensibility to acoustic music. As the decade progressed, Trampled by Turtles began to win the hearts of the bluegrass community; their 2008 album Duluth peaked at No. 8 on Billboard’s bluegrass chart. Their follow-up release Palomino (2010) continued the trend. Not many bands are as likely to take the stage at Coachella or Lollapalooza as at a bluegrass festival. Critics have called TBT’s latest album Life Is Good on the Open Road (2018) their best yet.

Indie band Deer Tick—“Rhode Island's most party-hearty purveyors of roadhouse rock 'n' roll” (The Guardian)—opens the show. The project of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John McCauley, the band coalesced in 2007 with its first album War Elephant. It has gone on to make seven more genre-defying records, including the recent Mayonnaise.
