This year, Springsfest in celebrating its fifth anniversary in Yellow Springs. It will be the fifth summer of music, craft beer and local art, all blending together seamlessly on the Antioch Hall Front Lawn on July 18, beginning at 11:30 a.m. 

If you’ve grown tired of overpriced music festivals filled with a roster of obscure acts, then Springsfest proves to be the sweetest local antidote. 

Produced in partnership with the Yellow Spring Brewery and Great Guys Entertainment, festival attendees are treated to a selection of national, regional and local acts. Last year’s edition brought national and regional acts like Deerhunter, Post Animal and Grapetooth.
