vote for the 2023 kickoff artist

Our lineup for 2023 is focused on highlighting the talent from Arkansas even more so with all artists being Arkansas-based.

We chose to allow YOU to nominate your favorites and vote for who you'd like to see open the festival. 


  • Must be an Arkansas-based solo, duo, or band
  • Must be at least 16 years old.
  • Must be able to perform 2:30-3:30 pm on May 27, 2023 at North Little Rock Riverfront Park on our Yadaloo stage.
  • At least 80% original music for their set
  •  Must not have been on our Yadaloo lineup before
  • Genre: Country, Americana, Bluegrass

Note: You can vote for more than one artist, but voting multiple times for the same artist will not increase their chances.

We will take all of the nominations, scrub through to check eligibility, then we will weigh your public vote as 100% of the total chosen slot. We will announce the top 5 artists so you guys can see who made it! 

This should be fun and a way for us to highlight Arkansas based artists and rally their fans and supporters to join our Yadaloo lineup!

The artist will receive $500 for their performance and a featured artist spotlight on our website and social media.
