HOH Fest is the first multi-day concert of the 2010 festival season and uniquely different than many other festivals that will be happening this year. Last year, over 17,000 attendees took in over 100 punk, indie-rock, hip hop, alt-country, folk, and blues bands.
This year's lineup showcases a diverse roster once again with national and international acts including Billy Brag, Dr. Dog, The Mountain Goats, Leatherface, Rogue Wave, Delta Spirit, Senses Fail, Anti-Flag, Dead Prez, Kimya Dawson, Samiam, Torche, Strike Anywhere, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Dr. Octagon, plus over 150 more artists joining together to raise awareness to the plight of migrant farm workers.
Right in time for spring break, the 2010 Harvest of Hope Festival is conveniently located on the St. John's County Fairgrounds – which offers 90 acres of shaded grassy pasture for plenty of fantastic rustic camping. The festival is an ideal destination to spend spring break and support an amazing and blossoming charity organization. Harvest of Hope Fest is located just a short distance from historic St. Augustine and its beaches, and is within an easy drive of Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Gainesville.

Proceeds from the charity fundraiser festival will benefit the Harvest of Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides emergency and educational aid to some of the hardest working and often overlooked people keeping our agricultural economy moving - migrant farm workers.
Harvest of Hope distributes funds to migrant farm workers and their families to help pay for food, medical services, clothing, rent, educational scholarships, and more.

A donation-based application process for bands interested in performing at the 2010 Harvest of Hope Fest was created to raise funds and awareness for the Harvest of Hope Foundation. Over 250 artists from all over the country made a donation of $5 to the Harvest of Hope Foundation and were granted access to fill out the 2010 Band Application which included a section that asked what migrant workers' struggles meant to them. The application process has now ended and on January 21, HOH Fest will announce the winners chosen to perform.
