The Hop Jam, Oklahoma’s largest craft beer and music festival, is excited to announce its full music lineup for this year’s all-ages free concert, plus the initial roster of 100+ breweries anticipated to participate. Set to take place on two stages on May 19, the 2019 Hop Jam will be lead by festival founders HANSON, returning to the Hop Jam stage after a world tour, where they performed with orchestras in North America, Europe and Australia including a sold-out appearance with the Tulsa Symphony which will take place on May 17. Along with HANSON will be a much anticipated reuniting of indie rock powerhouse Phantom Planet. The return of celebrated indie rockers best known for their iconic track “California” follows nearly a decade on hiatus for the band, during which members of the group have found success with various solo endeavors. The Hop Jam 2019 is the band’s first show announced to mark their reassembly.
“It’s exciting to share the stage with our friends Phantom Planet, for their much anticipated return, along with an exciting lineup of high energy rock n’ roll,” said HANSON member and festival co-founder, Taylor Hanson. Added Isaac Hanson, “This may be our favorite music lineup yet.”
Rounding out the main stage lineup is Southern rock outfit The Weeks, Tulsa’s own Wilderado, and Joshua and The Holy Rollers helmed by fourth Hanson brother Mac Hanson. Opening the main stage will continue to be the winner of the longstanding Awesome Music Opening Band Contest, hosted in partnership with Tulsa World, with the top runners up performing on the Park Stage at Guthrie Green. Submissions open March 25th at TulsaWorld.com/AwesomeMusicContest.
