More details are taking shape for the Old Settler’s Music Festival, which moves to a new home near Lockhart in April 2018. New additions to the lineup include J.D. McPherson, Will Hoge, California Honeydrops and the War & Treaty, and a partial day-by-day lineup has been set.

The announcements follow a turbulent stretch marked by a split between Old Settler’s board members and two former colleagues who had sought to launch a competing event the same weekend at the fest’s previous site. A judge issued an injunction against the Driftwood Music Festival in November, at least temporarily quelling the conflict.

Tickets, ranging from $35 to $75 for single-day passes and $130 to $500 for weekend-long packages, are on sale now via the festival’s website.
