The Woodsist Festival is returning in 2012, once again setting up at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, California. The event will take place over Aug. 4 and 5, with the initial lineup already looking worth the price of admission. Among the acts appearing are Real Estate, Woods, Thee Oh Sees and Peaking Lights.
Among the other highlights will be a set from Real Estate's Matthew Mondanile in his Ducktails guise, plus a few additions from outside the Woodsist roster. Among those is the Dead Moon offshoot Pierced Arrows and the legendary Folkways signee Michael Hurley, both of whom are descirbed as "some of our all time favorite artists" by the organizers.
Tickets for the event go on sale today (March 9) at noon over at folkYEAH!, while the Woodsist website has a list of helpful options for accommodation. Expect further additions to the lineup as the festival draws closer, but for now the initial billing looks like this:
Saturday Aug. 4
Sunday Aug. 5
Thee Oh Sees
Fresh & Onlys
