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.

HOH has partnered with Creativeallies.com to give graphic artists a chance to have their artwork featured as an official festival T-shirt and poster design.
