The Harvest of Hope Fest is unlike most festivals. It is a benefit event with all proceeds donated to 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. With the charity in mind, artists from over 150 rock, folk, alternative, punk, blues and hip-hop bands perform for free or reduced rates. Select headlining artists have become huge supporters of the Harvest of Hope foundation and will be available for interviews. These artists include: The Mountain Goats, Delta Spirit, Dr. Dog, Kimya Dawson, Anti Flag, Sense Fail & Dead Confederate.
