Catch Salary, Childsaint, Jacob Diamond, The Floors, Verge Collection and The Kill Devil Hills on the main stage with The Shakeys, Braves, Segue Safari, PUCK, HUSSY, Thee Loose Hounds on the Hen House stage and Timothy Nelson in the beer garden. It kicks off at 6pm and goes until the last band finishes at 2am.
