Just when you’re finished with Wakarusa, it’s Harvest Music Festival time. And just when Harvest moves to your rearview mirror, the cycle begins again.

The annual four-day Wakarusa Music Festival will return to Mulberry Mountain May 31 through June 3, 2012.

Reserved Campsite passes go on sale beginning at 12 p.m. Nov. 11 which means if you’re considering grabbing one of these, you better act fast. Reserve Campsite passes usually sell out in a day or two.

The Reserved Campsite grounds are completely shaded and include permanent restrooms with showers. The campsites are equipped with electrical and water hook-ups, so they’re ideal if you have an RV. Up to eight campers and two vehicles are allowed at each campsite and the cost is usually about $550. (Note: Price does not included festival tickets, just camping.)

Full festival passes usually go on sale in early December and were about $225 last year.

Artist announcements usually come in early-to mid-January.
