For four decades, the Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival, which takes place this year on Oct. 17-19, has been a popular local attraction.

This year — and for the foreseeable future — you’ll have to add it to your list of must-see music festivals. Confirmed acts so far include the Balkun Brothers, Branchwater (pictured), Little Ugly, the Sarah LeMieux Quintet, Bonsai Trees, Johnny Mainstream, Kerri Powers, Them Damn Hamiltons, Klokwize, Seth Adam, Heather Fay, Wise Old Moon, Elle Sera, Canyon, Hanging Hills, Joey Batts & Them, the Brandt Taylor Band, the Meadows Brothers, and Rusty Things.

That already seems like a lot of music, but organizer Chip McCabe expects to add even more artists in coming weeks.

According to the press release, the festival brings in more than 15,000 visitors each year. Of course, there’s more to do at the fest than listen to music. There’ll be food, beer and wine, rides, and probably some way to eat apples too.
