CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- The lineup for this weekend's Clearwater Festival is a music lover's dream.

The festival is running Saturday and Sunday at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson. It is the oldest and largest music environmental festival, started by Pete Seeger and his wife, Toshi.

Arlo Guthrie headlines this year's festival. Other performers include Lake Street Drive, Los Lobos, Joan Osborne singing Bob Dylan and Josh Ritter.

“With all that is going on in the country this year, it has never been more important to come together to celebrate diversity,” said Steve Lurie, Clearwater Festival producer.

As part of that mission, this year the festival will present artists from around the world including Ukrainian folk-fusion troupe dakhabrakha; salsa artist Jimmy Bosch Y Su Sexteto del Otro Mundo; the Israeli sisters of A-WA, who combine Yemenite folk singing with electronic dance music; and Plena Libre, the great Puerto Rican plena and bomba group. Indie Mambo band Orkesta Mendoza; Cuban songstress Daymé Arocena will also be performing.

Tickets are available for purchase at www.ClearwaterFestival.org . Clearwater members receive a 20 percent discount off regularly priced advanced tickets. Kids 12 and under are free.
