MerleFest, presented by Window World, has just added another list of performers to its already stacked 2023 lineup. Marcus King, Tanya Tucker, Little Feat, and more will join the lineup that features headliners like The Avett Brothers and Maren Morris.

Taking place April 27-30, 2023, on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, MerleFest attendees will also have the chance to check out Miko Marks’ blend of country, blues, southern rock and gospel, and many more that will take to the festival’s multiple weekend stages.
