While other festivals like Bonnaroo and SXSW are littered front to back with varying musical genres, BCMF does a phenomenal job at keeping the funk flowing front to back. In previous years BCMF had its fair share of funk, but also kept a very organic acoustic presence. That appears to have taken a small back seat in order to accommodate the funk this go around. This year, the event takes place in its standard location in Live Oak, FL starting on Wednesday November 13th for a benefit concert and continuing through Sunday November 17th. While the preliminary sound is definitely New Orleans, Bear Creek Music Festival organizers did an amazing job at mixing things up this year by adding different flavors of funk from the DJ oriented, jam band sessions, and even hip hop in the form of our favorite rap act of all time, The Roots. The scale will be amazing as it is every year , with plenty of opportunities to rub elbows with your favorites and meet tons of new funky friends over the duration of the event.

Taking advantage of the now well-proven site on the river at Mardi Gras World , the fest is reinvigorating its highly respected brand with two great days and nights of music. The full lineup is here. It should be interesting seeing this band before noon. Four New Orleans funk ensembles kick off at 4PM on alternate stages with a small amount of overlap before the main event. Soulive burst on the scene with a post-modern take on the organ trio almost fifteen years ago.
This well-rounded lineup is everything a funk fan could hope for. There are also a few Supergroups made up of several artists from different bands like Foundations of Funk George Porter Jr. These bands contribute to the NOLA funk family and have continually helped deepen the roots of this thriving scene. Bear Creek Bayou Music Festival has hand picked an amazing variety of local artists, but here are five we think you definitely need to check out:.
