NEWS from locknfestival.com/:
We love our Lockn’ Artist Lumni! We are very excited to announce that Widespread Panic will be returning to Lockn’ Festival for their third straight appearance, playing two nights again! Widespread Panic put on an unforgettable show in 2013 at our inaugural event, including John Fogerty sitting in for songs from Creedence Clearwater Revival. Last year, they did it again with Steve Winwood. We can’t wait to see what they do this year!
We’re honored to have Tedeschi Trucks Band back at Lockn’ for a third year, and playing two nights this year! Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have proven themselves one of the hottest, most uplifting acts on the road today.
And another Artist Lumni, The String Cheese Incident will be joining us again, also playing two nights! SCI is not afraid to mix it up either – their collaboration with Zac Brown in 2013 and their tribute in 2014 to Kool and the Gang with Preservation Hall Jazz Band and JT Taylor were huge crowd favorites!
And finally for this week’s artist announcements, The String Cheese Incident and The Doobie Brothers are pleased to announce “The Doobie Incident”, the newest artist collaboration at LOCKN’ Music Festival, which has become known for its legendary artist pairings. This year, SCI will team up with rock legends The Doobie Brothers (featuring Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons & John McFee) for a special one-of-a-kind Incident that mixes elements of rock, roots, blues and funk to create what is sure to be a show for the ages!
The String Cheese Incident are a household name in the jamband world, having played at LOCKN’ Fest in each of its first two years, while The Doobie Brothers have been a force in the rock and roll scene for over 4 decades, selling more than 48 million albums and winning four GRAMMY awards. Don’t miss your chance to see these two amazing bands on one stage – exclusively at LOCKN’ Festival in 2015!
