Before Nateva Festival came on to the scene last year, Maine had like one festival to its name — The Maine Lobster Festival — which, if I understand correctly, is some orgiastic dionisyian hellscape with literal tons of delicious crustaceans at the ready to consume. But the Nateva Music & Camping Festival will not be dwarfed by some coastal food frenzy. And because the 2010 inaugural Natvea proved, all in all, a success, the fest is returning for another year and another round of jam-heavy headliners. Watch your back, you lobster-loving fucks, cause Natvea’s crunchy grooves are gonna be all over your stupid arthropodal festival.

STS9, Thievery Corporation, Gregg Allman Band, John Butler Trio, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and a solo Bob Weir will lead the lineup at this year’s festival, to take place August 4-7 in Oxford, ME. Just under those names on the bill are Guster, Ghostland Observatory, Chris Robinson and Jackie Greene (acoustic duo), Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, and 7 Walkers (Featuring Bill Kreutzmann). There’s plenty more, too. For a complete up-to-date lineup, head over to Natvea’s Festival Outlook page.

Tickets are on sale now at Nateva’s website, with layway, RV, and VIP plans available. The Nateva Music & Camping Festival runs concurrently with the Maine Lobster Fest this year, so all you Maineacs are gonna have to choose: chill grooves and camping or eating cockroaches of the sea. You’re call.
