Music & Festivals

The musical heritage of The Natural State is rich and varied. For one, we’re the birthplace of famous artists like Al Green, Johnny Cash, Sister Rosetta Tharp, Ne-Yo and Glen Campbell. We’re also home to Mountain View, the "Folk Music Capital of the World,” where the traditional sounds of the Ozarks are nurtured and preserved for future generations. And in the Delta, you’ll find Rock ‘n’ Roll Highway 67, where nightclubs hosted legends like Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis.

If you’re into music festivals, you’re in luck. From interactive art and electronic music at FORMAT in Bentonville to classic Delta blues at King Biscuit in Historic Helena, there’s something for everyone here. So plan your trip and enjoy the sweet sounds of The Natural State. Your ears will thank you.
