Jesus Kills 2019 Wanee Festival
After 13 years of serving up jammy tunes, Florida’s Wanee Festival won’t be back in 2019. The reason? Easter.

From the official statement: “The traditional weekend for the Wanee Music Festival in 2019 falls on the same weekend as Good Friday, Easter, and Passover. It has been the Wanee Festival experience in the past that many of our regular festival goers decide not to attend on this weekend, due to the holiday being one that many choose with their family, friends, and religious faith.”

New Festival Alert! Arizona Roots
As one jam festival dies, another jam festival is born. This winter, the crew behind the popular California Roots Festival head south to the Phoenix area for a new two-day fest at Rawhide Western Town. Rebelution and Stick Figure will headline.

New Festival Alert! Dreamstate Europe
In April, Dreamstate heads over to Europe with a new single day edition of the popular trance festival that will take place in Gliwice, Poland.
