Muskifest released a lineup of artists for their ten day marathon of music that runs from August 3-12, 2012. This is the 29th year that Musikfest will rock Bethlehem, Penssylanvia. Musikfest boasts the title of the “nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival.” This translates to 500 performers on fifteen stages over the course of the festival.

Besides the free music at Musikfest, there are currently two ticketed performances scheduled with Sheryl Crow and Boston. Tickets range from $30-$50. Expect to see some more added as we get closer to the show. Below is the current Musikfest lineup — the bulk of these are free shows.
