A full list of first round confirmations can be seen below.

Right in time for spring break, the 2010 Harvest of Hope Festival is conveniently located on the St. John’s County Fairgrounds – which offers 90 acres of shaded grassy pasture for plenty of fantastic rustic camping.

Proceeds from the charity fundraiser festival will benefit the Harvest of Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides emergency and educational aid to some of the hardest working and often overlooked people keeping our agricultural economy moving – migrant farm workers. Harvest of Hope distributes funds to migrant farm workers and their families to help pay for food, medical services, clothing, rent, educational scholarships, and more.

A donation-based application process for bands interested in performing at the 2010 Harvest of Hope Fest was created to raise funds and awareness for the Harvest of Hope Foundation. Over 250 artists from all over the country made a donation of $5 to the Harvest of Hope Foundation and were granted access to fill out the 2010 Band Application which included a section that asked what migrant workers’ struggles meant to them. The application process has now ended and on January 21st, HOH Fest will announce the winners chosen to perform.
