Flagstaff Hullabaloo Brings El Ten Eleven, Cool Air to Festival Circuit June 1-2

The Flagstaff Hullabaloo is not a big festival -- 2013's June 1-2 event in Wheeler Park is the first time it's stretched to two days -- and because there are a lot of big festivals in and around the Phoenix area, that might seem like an unbeatable disadvantage. But they do have one thing going for them: an average high temperature of 75 degrees.

Average Phoenix highs for that weekend are 97. Combined with a $10 ticket price, bands including headliners El Ten Eleven and Grupo Fantasma and Phoenix favorites like the Sugar Thieves and Dry River Yacht Club, and -- well, and a costume contest, you could probably do worse than making the drive up the 17.

More information is available at the event's website, though if I'm being honest with myself, I'm almost as excited that Circus Bacchus is an actual circus (or at least people acting circus-like), and not an indie band with a funny name, as I am about any one of the acts here.

The schedule:

Band SAT Band SUN
Voluntary String Band 10:45-12:00 Planet Sandwich 10:45-11:45
Dave Logan Band 12:30-1:45 Nolan & The Confounders 12:00-12:45
Dry River Yacht Club 2:15-3:30 Circus Bacchus 1:15-2:15
Chicha Dust 4:00-5:15 Sugar Thieves 2:45-4:00
Bad Cactus Brass Band 5:45-7:00 Grupo Fantasma 4:30-6:00
El Ten Eleven 7:30-9:00
