Hinterland Music Festival
Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater, St. Charles, Iowa — Friday-Sunday, Aug. 2-4
The fifth annual Hinterland Music Festival announced its headliners today, which include Irish blues/folk rocker Hozier, Alabama alt-country group Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Americana artist and Hinterland alumna Brandi Carlile, country singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves, eight-piece soul group St. Paul and The Broken Bones and more.
Iowa-based musicians Keuning, the Maytags, Elizabeth Moen and Adam Bruce will also perform.
Top-billed Hozier (the stage name of Andrew Hozier-Byrne) rose to prominence in 2013 with the release of the haunting indie rock single “Take Me to Church” (nearing a billion plays on Spotify) from his self-titled debut EP. He delivered his highly anticipated follow-up EP, Nina Cried Power, in 2018, and will release a full-length album titled Wasteland, Baby! on March 1.
The 2019 Hinterland fest is bigger than ever. Held in St. Charles, Iowa — just southwest of Des Moines — from Friday, Aug. 2 to Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019, the fifth iteration of the music, camping, arts and crafts festival has been extended from two to three days.
