The 2018 Hipnic X music festival will be held at Fernwood Campground and Resort in Big Sur, California on May 18 – 20. The lineup for the 10th annual event curated by (((folkYEAH!))) founder Britt Govea and The Mother Hips has been revealed.
Along with performances by The Mother Hips, the Hipnic X lineup also includes Jackie Greene, Jay Farrar (of Son Volt), Flamin’ Groovies, Marc Olson (of The Jayhawks), Midnight North, Scott Law and Ross James’ Cosmic Twang and several others. More acts are expected to be added in the coming weeks.
The Mother Hips recently announced they were working on a new album. The group will also soon return to full time touring, featuring an expanded lineup, following co-founder Tim Bluhm’s 2015 speed flying accident.
“Hipnic was started by us and (((folkYEAH!))) – it’s a small, family-friendly festival that started as a kind of response to the bigger summer music festivals in California,” said Bluhm. “We wanted to host an event that was laid back, uncrowded, not hot or dusty, and with only music that we like to listen to. The Hipnic, being our own creation, is of course my favorite event of the year. It has taken on the feeling of a grand rendezvous more so than a music festival. This one is a red letter day, being the 1h0t anniversary.”
Tickets are available via this link or by calling Fernwood Campground at 831.667.2422.
