The Hasslers - 2:10 - 3:00 p.m. Country rock five-piece band with a bluegrass indie rock sound. If you like mad harmonies, this is the group for you.

Off In The Woods - 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Reggae rock funk band featuring songs about their native Montana - fill you up better than Campell's Chunky soup.

Three-Eared Dog - 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Originally a blues band that has evolved into a rockabilly sound reminiscent of Buddy Holly.

Downtown Dance Collective - 7:15 p.m. ON-Q dance performance

Shakewell - 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. Winner of ZooTown Music Award for best Funk/Reggae band - they will have the audience on its feet.

Cure For The Common - 9:00 - 10:20 p.m. Funk/rock band who is one of the biggest bands in Montana. Blowing up at a venue near you as they bring their energy to cap off the day.

"Basically, I have been hosting weekly showcases in town and as a musician, I know all of these musicians. Although there are a lot of festivals in town, I wanted to create a festival that is by Missoula and for Missoula to showcase all the amazing talent we have here in Montana," says Festival creator Leif Christian.

Beer will be provided by Big Sky Brewing Company; wine will be provided by Missoula Winery and Event Center. In addition, enjoy great food from El Cazador, Clove Cart Pizza Peddlers, Big Dipper Ice Cream, Bao Chow, Chicken Bacon Tater, Masala Food Cart, Missoula MT and The Wild Weenie!
