MerleFest 2023, presented by Window World, will be held on the campus of Wilkes Community College April 27-30. 2023 artists include The Avett Brothers, Maren Morris, Little Feat, Marcus King, Tanya Tucker, and more!

The MUSIC of MerleFest was best explained by Doc himself: “When Merle and I started out we called our music ‘traditional plus’, meaning the traditional music of the Appalachian region plus whatever other styles we were in the mood to play. Since the beginning, the people of the college and I have agreed that the music of MerleFest is ‘traditional plus’.”

The MOMENTS of MerleFest are those unique experiences that only happen here. It may be two musicians you never expected to see collaborating, a shooting star over the Watson Stage during an evening’s closing set, or that one set that seems to have touched everyone in the audience.

It's a MerleFest Winning Weekend and that means every single hour this weekend we're throwing out tickets like they're candy so keep The Wolf on while you do your thang. Keep listening for your chance to win a pair of one-day general admission tickets!
