The 2012 Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival returns for another year on Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, Arkansas.

This year’s event runs from Thursday, Oct. 11 through Saturday, Oct. 13 and includes nearly 80 artists and bands.

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.

Head over to JamBase to make yourself a customized stage schedule for the weekend.

For those who simply cannot wait for the music to begin, check out Paste magazine’s free 14-track Harvest sampler or download the Punch Brothers’ free four-song collection of live tracks, recorded at The Fillmore in San Francisco.

We’ll have plenty of photos once we return. Until then, enjoy the weekend.
