Low Key Arts is pleased to announce the 10th annual HOT WATER HILLS MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL, taking place on Friday and Saturday, September 30 and October 1, 2022. The festival takes place at Hill Wheatley Plaza at 605 Central Ave. in downtown Hot Springs National Park. 


The lineup is a fiery mix of exciting performers from around the south, including:g HILLBILLY CASINO (Nashville, TN), THE MASK OF THE PHANTASM (Austin, TX), returning VOV headliners VARIOUS BLONDE (Kansas City, MO), THE 40 ACRE MULE (Dallas, TX), OPTIC SINK (Memphis, TN), KAIROS (Austin, TX), HAYEFIELD (Little Rock, AR), ANNIE FORD (Little Rock, AR), BOOTLEG ROYALE (Fayetteville, AR), JONIVAN JONES (Oklahoma City, OK), COSMIC CREAM (Hot Springs, AR), TURTLE RUSH (Hot Springs, AR), and SPA CITY YOUNGBLOODS (Hot Springs, AR).


Founded in 2011, Hot Water Hills last occurred in 2019 before the onset of the pandemic forced canceling the festival in 2020. By 2021, assembling crowds was still so iffy that Low Key Arts opted to produce a socially-distanced, outdoor version of its “other” annual festival, Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival, at Cedar Glades Park instead.

Now, after an absence of three full years, Hot Water Hills is rested up, vaxxed and ready to rock! HWH features artists, vendors, kids activities, food and refreshments, and more. It's open to all ages, and children 12 and under enter free. Doors open at 4:00 PM on Friday, September 30. From noon until 4:00 PM on Saturday, October 1, festival entry is free for everyone. Ticketed entry begins once again at 4:00 on Saturday with the commencement of live music. Tickets go on sale September 1.
