May 31-June 3 will mark the 2018 edition of the Nelsonville Music Festival on the grounds of Robbins Crossing in Nelsonville. Headliners include none other than George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, The Decemberists, Ani DiFranco, and The Black Angels. Although there are still more acts to be announced, it’s about time that you get to schooling yourself on some of the most essential cuts from the vast variety of acts slated to perform at this year’s festival.

This playlist, curated by WOUB arts and culture editor Emily Votaw, will continue to grow as the festival grows near, and it’s worth your time to subscribe to it so you can stay on top of everything from dynamite Neil Young covers by the likes of Sunflower Bean to the slickest tunes from tune-yards to the saddest songs about the cheapest wine by Charlie Parr.

Tickets are available now at
