The Beartrap Summer Festival is coming back.

The two-day music festival is returning to Beartrap Meadow on Casper Mountain on Aug. 7-8, organizers announced Friday.

This year’s lineup includes headliners Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers on Saturday and Kenny Wayne Shepherd on Sunday, as well as other nationally and regionally recognized musicians.

Like most music events in Wyoming, Beartrap was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hornsby and the Noisemakers were slated to perform at the 2020 festival. So were the Charlie Daniels Band, which are no longer slated to perform.

However, music and other entertainment events are returning amid a decline in cases and a rise in the number of people vaccinated against the virus.

Aside from the music, the festival is also set to bring in local vendors, an open-air food court, a beer garden, kids activities, a VIP space and camping near the meadow.

Other performers will include Wylie Jones, Ben Rice, That Damned Sasquatch, Ryan Chris & The Roughcuts, The Lionel Young Band, Felix y Los Gatos, and Ghost Town Blues Band.

Since its beginning more than 25 years ago, the festival has attracted thousands of concertgoers to Beartrap Meadow on Casper Mountain. The festival initially focused on bluegrass, but expanded genres over the years.

Past headliners have included Los Lobos, Wynonna Judd, Skid Row and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
