Not surprisingly boasting one of the best festival lineups yet, the inimitable Lockn’ Festival announced its initial lineup today. The addition of 2 nights (4 sets) of Phish is absolutely massive, as are Ween and My Morning Jacket. Most of the other acts on the bill have played the festival before, but that doesn’t make their appearance any less potent. Among the returning artists are Tedeschi Trucks Band, Umphrey’s McGee, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Keller Williams (Grateful Gospel & Grateful Grass) and more.

Surprisingly absent from the lineup thus far are any of the 4 remaining members of the Grateful Dead. The Core 4 have been a staple of the Lockn’ Festival lineups since its beginnings, and while there are still more artists to be announced, I find it odd that none of them are listed yet. Only time will tell…

The festival will take place August 25-28, 2016 at its regular home at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, VA.
