It begins at 1:30 p.m. with such acts as Mia Z, Jimmy Adler and Charlie Barath, Bo Hog Brothers, Pet Cro, Blues Devils, Paul the Resonator and Ruby Red and the Dirty Devils.

A dinner buffet will be available during the break early in the evening, and there will be an after-party/jam with last year's winner, Billy the Kid and the Regulators, at 10:30 p.m.
