The 4th Annual 10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF) kicks off next week with over sixty artists scheduled to perform July 19-22 at the Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, MN.

In preparation for four nights of music, camping, and relaxation, 10KLF attendees are now able to create a customized weekend planner with the 10KLF-Base festival grid.

The 10,000 Lakes Festival’s line-up includes Phil Lesh & Friends, Trey Anastasio & Mike Gordon with the Benevento Russo Duo, The String Cheese Incident, Keller Williams Incident (performing with The String Cheese Incident), O.A.R. (...Of A Revolution), Keller Williams (solo), Umphrey's McGee, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, The Samples, Railroad Earth, Hot Buttered Rum, Kimock/Perkins and over fifty additional bands.

The super-group Everyone Orchestra will hold a musical ‘experiment’ by collaborating with a roster of musicians and artists performing 10KLF with their own projects. The EO line up will include Steve Kimock, Vince Herman, members of Hot Buttered Rum, Tea Leaf Green, Andy Goessling and Tim Carbone from Railroad Earth plus conscious rapper Souleye and additional special guests for a set of improvisational offerings by musicians all performing ‘in the moment.’

Drawing from a pool full of talented national, regional, and emerging acts, the 10,000 Lakes Festival seeks to be the nation’s premier music and camping festival destination. Enjoying the scene’s top performers within the stunning natural beauty of clear lakes and spacious, wooded campgrounds provides all attendees an unparalleled festival experience.

The festival will also host numerous activities on the grounds including a nine-hole disc golf course, yoga sessions, percussion workshops, campground entertainment stages, as well as showers, ATMs, food and merchandise vendors including a rare ''Festival Taxi'' service offering rides throughout the grounds on the coveted golf cart.

The non-profit group Conscious Alliance is proud to announce the 2nd Annual 10KLF Food Drive to benefit the White Earth Indian Reservation of Minnesota. Patrons that donate 10 or more non-perishable food items will receive a complimentary 10KLF poster while supplies last featuring artwork from renowned poster artist Jeff Wood of Drowning Creek Studios. Donation bins will be located outside of each main entrance to the festival grounds and will also be marked on the festival guide map.

The non-profit, non-partisan voter registration group HeadCount will be holding a very special raffle of 4 signed original Jim Pollack artist proof festival posters. Visit the HeadCount booth at 10,000 Lakes to sign up for the raffle and register to vote. Midterms Matter!

Hell yea Nat, this week is surely to be amazing. I did hear from multiple people on the stringcheese/ratdog tour and the phil/grab tour that there will be 3x the amount of police/security at this years festy than last years. We can all make it through fine. Just remember to spread good vibes, be courteous, be smart, and be safe. The only way law enforcement can ruin our festy is if we let them. Everybody keep your good karma intact and have the time of your lives. SEE YOU IN 3 DAYS!!!

Wait, I thought GRAB was playing at 10,000 or is it just the Trey Anastasio Carnival Side show closing it out? I am sure he will guest with Mike and the Duo if that is the case!

Acording to an e.mail reply from the fesival promoters Trey has a three hour closing block to do with as he chooses, it might just be GRAB the whole time. As far any member of Phish sacking it up and playing with SCI, I hope that never happens. I heard that Fishmen was quoted calling SCI the Starbucks of Jam Bands and I could not agree more. I've always complained about bands like SCI and Particle who seem to rather cater to the "scene" instead of creating music that they love.
