Both the festival and campgrounds are family owned and operated by a team with over 30 years of music festival experience. It is their goal to provide a fan-centric festival experience that is welcoming and approachable for people of all ages. Blue Ox features over 35 artists spread across 3 days on three stages and on-site camping.
