A music festival that got its start last year will be back for a second year this spring

AMMPlify festival, organized this year by Holy Anvil Recording Company and AMMPlify NWA, is set for Saturday, April 27 at the dining hall inside Mount Sequoyah Center.

The second year festival will include performances by local and regional acts Obliviate, Mud Lung, Heldtight, Always Tired, Chrono Wizard, and Pyrocratic this year, according to an Instagram post annoncing the lineup last week.

The festival, created through a new program paid for by the Walmart Foundation and administered by Mount Sequoyah Center, was created in 2023 with the idea to connect emerging artists, talent managers, and performers with mentors in related fields to create a multi-dimensional festival on Mount Sequoyah in the spring, and other events throughout the year. 

Last year’s event featured headliners Adam Faucett, Bonnie Montgomery, and Justin Peter Kinkel Schuster as headliners.

Mentors working on this year’s event include Raif Box of Holy Anvil, Julia Paganelli Marín of Bee Balm Arkansas, and local artist Dea Self.

This year’s festival is free to attend, and open to the public. It’s an all ages show, with music set to begin at 6 p.m. More festivities associated with the 2024 festival are expected to be announced soon.
