Nestled in the heart of Northwest Michigan’s Manistee National Forest, Hoxeyville is a testament to pure North Country peace as well as a good ol’ down home hootenanny. Bringing together some of the most talented artists in Michigan and beyond, the 10th annual Hoxeyville promises to be one for the record books.
Keeping with its founders’ original intent, the Hoxeyville Music Festival offers attendees an intimate musical experience among natural wooded beauty featuring the privacy of its spacious 20’ x 30’ wooded campsites and a fan-friendly attendance capacity of 5000. The festival’s 85-acre vast campgrounds offer enough room for everyone to camp and live just a short walk to the concert grounds.
As in years past, the festival site also features a disc golf course with a glow course, a variety of VIP and quiet camping options, a vendor village and a beer tent with some of the finest regional brews. Complete festival details are available at www.hoxeyville.com
