The Mid-Atlantic College Radio Conference (Macrock) is returning to Harrisonburg, VA, with the annual conference showcasing independent music artists, bands, panels and record labels. The 15th installation of the conference includes six venues and is taking place April 6 and 7.
 
The finalized full lineup of bands for Macrock XV can now be found on the Macrock website and includes Valkyrie, Timbre, Elephant Child, Yellow Ostrich, Hunx And His Punx, Hoop Dreams, White Laces and many, many more.
 
The lineup for the labels showcase expo has not been finalized yet, but so far the list of participating labels includes Funny/Not Funny, Big Bullet, Meltface, Forcefield and Sex Cave among others. This year’s panels cover topics like “Gotta Get Dat News,” “Kinda Like Woodstock” and “Spice Up Your Shirts.”
 
Macrock was formed in 1996 as a branch of WXJM and in 2006 became its own separate venture. It is run by a committee of volunteers, with help from Harrisonburg residents and businesses. Tickets are already sold out online for Saturday, April 7, but you can still purchase a ticket for Friday, April 6, for $20.
