Ready or not, here it comes. It’s almost time for another installment of the Yonder Mountain String Band Harvest Music Festival.

The three-day event is set for Oct. 11-13 on Mulberry Mountain.

The initial lineup was released in June, and the final stage schedule emerged earlier this week.

Headliners on the main stage include the Punch Brothers on Thursday, Mickey Hart Band on Friday night, and Leftover Salmon on Saturday, and Yonder Mountain String Band will close out each night on the main stage.

A few bands with Arkansas connections we noticed on the lineup are Little Rock’s Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass at 3 p.m. Thursday on the Backwoods Stage, Fayetteville favorites Isayah’s All-Stars on the Roost stage at 12:30 a.m. on Saturday night, and prolific Fayetteville ex-pat Joe Purdy in the Harvest Tent at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.

Missing from the lineup are Americana band, The Jayhawks, who were included in the initial artist lineup. We’ve contacted festival organizers to find out what happened there, but we haven’t heard back yet.

Update: According to Aaron Stahman with the festival, the Jayhawks had to cancel the appearance “because of an immigration / visa issue.”

The festival will take place Oct. 11-13, and tickets are on sale at yonderharvestfestival.com.
