The lineup for the yearly HoCo Fest isn't quite complete yet, but what has been solidified signifies that it'll be another great weekend of music over August 31st and September 1st-3rd.

What we know so far:

Friday night will be "hosted" by David Garza with Tallest Man on Earth and Strand of Oaks.

Saturday night will be "hosted" by Calexico, as they back several of the acts performing. That night will serve as the record release party for Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, as they perform with a 25 piece lineup and Spanish guitarist DePedro and Mexican Institute of Sound's Camilo Lara will be involved somehow.

Sunday, the Dusty Chaps, Bob Meighan, Sonidero Verbobala, and Taraf De Tucson are on the bill with surprise guests.

Monday (Labor Day), there's an act in the works that people will lose their minds over, but it's not quite confirmed yet.

Plus, there will also be daytime events, including record, rock poster and vintage gear fairs.

Tickets will be $15 a night, with the daytime stuff free of charge. More info as we get it.
