Other touring acts on the bill include the Travelin' McCourys, Steep Canyon Rangers, Steve Poltz, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers and Logan Ledger. Additional locals taking part include Jackie Venson, Carolyn Wonderland & Shelley King, Kalu & the Electric Joint, the Deer, Tomar & the FCs and Tony Kamel of Wood & Wire.

The festival, typically held in April, was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic. This year's event was postponed to fall for the same reason. Old Settler's began in Round Rock in 1987 and changed locations a few times, including a long run at the Salt Lick Pavilion in Driftwood, before purchasing property in Tilmon just south of Lockhart, about an hour's drive from Austin.
