Phish-heads around the country took a deep breath of excitement, held it for a moment, and exhaled slowly upon learning that the Vermont band will headline the 2016 Lockn’ Festival in Virginia. The typically festival averse Phish will top the stage both Friday and Sunday playing four sets. This also marks their only festival appearance of the year.
Other bands that aren’t Phish that will be at the fest: My Morning Jacket, Ween, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Charles Bradley, Brandi Carlile, Gary Clark Jr., Galactic, Keller’s Grateful Gospel, Keller’s Grateful Grass, Lettuce, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Turkuaz, Twiddle, Umphrey’s McGee, and many more to be announced down the road.
Lockn’ takes place August 25-28 in Arrington, Virginia. GA & VIP tickets will go on sale Friday, February 19 at noon ET on the official website.
