Lockn’ Announces Exciting Artist Additions And Daily Schedule

first_imgEarlier this year, LOCKN’ satisfied jam fans with a stacked lineup, featuring headlining sets from Phish, Ween and My Morning Jacket. The order of which these exciting acts would span out across the four-day weekend has since been a mystery, until now. The plot thickens with lineup additions, the daily schedule, and hints at how the site will look when the time comes this summer.Today, festival organizer Dave Frey announced three new artists: Peter Wolf (from J. Giles Band), The Wailers, and Khruangbin. In addition to these exciting new artists, he broke the schedule via Live Facebook video, revealing that Thursday’s music would start later and end later, as to account for everyone getting settled in with enough time, kicking things off with Vulfpeck, Umphrey’s McGee, and Ween with late night sets from EOTO and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Friday night’s schedule will bring both Ween and Phish (two sets), satisfying the heaviest of jam fans, before Tedeschi Trucks Band and My Morning Jacket rock Saturday night’s headlining sets. On Sunday, Phish will return and close out the festival with another two sets, following Gary Clark Jr., Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and The Wailers. Check out the full schedule below:In addition, Frey confirmed that more artists will eventually be announced in June, with heavy hints toward Phil Lesh & Friends and a definite “no” to String Cheese Incident, moe., and Slayer. As to resolve the mysterious “Garcia’s Forest” addition to the previously announced lineup, Frey described the triangle stage in the forest to remain “All Jerry, all the time.”He also mentioned that the festival will open it’s gates on Wednesday, and music will start later on Thursday, as to alleviate traffic problems. Beyond some advancements in the landscape and campgrounds, including a new bike trail, he also briefly mentioned a “rotating, turntable stage” that will take the place of the traditional interlocking stages that the festival was born upon. According to The Richmond Times, Frey explained it as “a huge turntable [that] it turns quickly,” where one band will play while the other is being set up. The stage will turn between sets, leaving little to no time between performances, and also no reason for audience members to have to move from their desired viewing area.In a recent interview with L4LM, festival founder Peter Shapiro spoke about the uniqueness that LOCKN’ brings to the table. “If you look at the other major festivals – and they’re great festivals, I’ve been to all of them and I love them – but if you took the name off the major festivals, and just looked at the lineups, it would be difficult to tell which one was which. I don’t think you’d be able to name which one was Outside Lands, which one was Lollapalooza, which one was ACL, which one was Bonnaroo, but you could identify LOCKN’.” Read more here.last_img read more
