10 Must-See Bands at Apache Lake Music Festival

Over the past few years, Apache Lake Music Festival has made the just-barely-perceptible leap from curiosity to institution, and it's easy to see why. As with most institutions, the core of it is a really simple idea done well: What if you could see a bunch of local bands in a novel, secularly fun setting?

Now that the weather's cooperating, it's a cheap -- $40 for a weekend pass and the easy-enough drive to Apache Lake Resort -- weekend getaway with a bunch of people you already know (and in some cases enjoy listening to). The complete, very long lineup is available via our online concert calendar. In the meantime, here are the bands we're looking forward to seeing out at Apache Lake.

The Apache Lake Music Festival is scheduled to take place Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19, at the Apache Lake Resort.
