“It’s an amazing chance to not only see all of the great talent in Arkansas in one place for one weekend, but for people to see all the national acts packed into one room with them,” said Jordan Haynes, co-creator of the festival. “Besides that, it’s really important and a blast for our performers to hang out with all of these people from all over and see how they work and get advice.”
