BYRDFEST 22 DOG POLICY- OK FOR NOW
We have decided to allow dogs ONLY if they are on leashes at all times. This is a zero tolerance policy! However, we strongly encourage you to NOT bring your dog due to all the safety and sanitary problems that arise with a large amount of dogs at a festival. Keep in mind there will be fireworks, loud music, other dogs, lots of people, etc.. We really need to cut down on the amount of dog bites and dog fights at festivals overall. This is for the safety of the attendees as well as the dogs. If you bring your dog and there is a complaint, you will be asked to leave. Please respect everyone and pick up after them as well. These rules also apply to service dogs. If we continue to have dog problems at Byrdfest we will have to not allow dogs at future events. Thank you!

JIMI HENDRIX TRIBUTE BAND
A tribute to the legendary music of Jimi Hendrix: Travel back in time to hear the sound that electrified Woodstock and the Summer of Love… The sound that set off a whole generation of rock n’ roll electric guitar fans. Including material from The Jimi Hendrix Experience as well as from the Band of Gypsies period, this group gives authentic presentations of all the favorites with the kind of energy and vibe that will leave you feeling Experienced!!! Featuring Jeremy Tennant, Seth Roberts, and Michael Robertson of Ft. Smith rock group, Factory.
BEN MILLER & PAT KAY DUO
Featuring Ben Miller of the Ben Miller Band and Pat Kay from The Kay Brothers, this all-star is something to see… It is unique collaboration of two of the region’s finest one-man-bands, watch as they haul all their banjos and foot drums and doo dads on to the stage and rip it together all night!
Hailing from Ft. Smith, AR and listing their influences for their original music as Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and Parliament/Funkadelic, Factory is a new musical framework for psychedelic and progressive rock. When they play, their music resonates throughout the cosmos. The music takes form with extensive compositions and can create any atmospheric ambience it pleases. At some points they drift into blues and funk influence which is enticing to hear followed by sweet glazing lyrics. This band enters an unearthly horizon and landscape in rock n roll.
