The lineup for the fifth annual Las Tortugas Dance of the Dead festival has just been announced. Once again set to take place over Halloween weekend Oct 28-31 at the Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite, CA, this year's event features a whole bunch of familiar faces as ALO returns as headliners along with 7 Walkers feat Bill Kreutzman, Papa Mali and George Porter Jr. as well as The Mother Hips, and more. As per usual the Tea Leaf Green crew will make their mark with a Trevor Garrard solo show along with Josh Clark's Guitarmageddon doing the music of Prince in addition to a full band show. Partay.
