Today (December 4), Hogs for the Cause announced the music lineup for its 2019 festival, which takes place March 29 and 30.
Along with 90 barbecue teams serving up food and battling to be named the Grand Champion, more than 20 performers will flock to the UNO Lakefront Arena for the annual music festival and BBQ cookoff. The two-day affair celebrated its tenth anniversary with a sprawling lineup featuring North Mississippi Osborne, Mipso, Samantha Fish and many more. For the 11th annual affair, organizers have once again amassed an impressive list of musical talent.

Director and Co-Founder of Hogs for the Cause Becker Hall stated, “Coming off of a sold-out Hogs this year, we really wanted to take the music to the next level for 2019. Our lineup is the best one we’ve had yet, proving that Hogs is as much a music festival as it is a food festival. It all goes to one amazing cause—to provide aid to families with children being treated for pediatric brain cancer—and that’s our main motivation.”
As always, Hogs for the Cause benefits pediatric brain cancer outreach. Tickets for this year’s festival will go on sale Friday, December 7 at 10 a.m. CST. For more information, click here.
