I have been to many shows and festivals during my brief time on Earth. One of the most special times to me was Lockn’. I attended the festival in 2014 and just fell in love with it. The vibe was incredible! I don’t think I ever noticed anyone not smiling. I was heartbroken I could not go last year. Well, my heart is full of joy because I’m going back to see how the 2016 edition of Lockn’ will feed my soul.
The festival takes place at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, Virginia. It’s a beautiful venue for a festival.
Lockn’ has finally provided a bit of what humanity can expect and so far it’s very tasty! The lineup so far includes……
Phish playing 4 sets over 2 nights. Yeah, I said 4 sets over 2 nights. Woo hoo!
Ween is joining in on the fun for 2 nights.
My Morning Jacket will amaze and astound all in attendance.
A highlight for me will be the two late night sets Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.
One of my all time favorites Brandi Carlile will make her first appearance at Lockn’. Did you catch her set last year at Bonnaroo?
Gary Clark Jr. will be on hand to melt faces and get the crowd moving.
Lettuce will bring that funk to Virginia.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood will scratch your psychedelic rock itch. Trust me, you do not want to miss their set.
Tedeschi Trucks Band will be back at Lockn’ once again. Once that band starts, you do not want them to stop.
Umphrey’s McGee is stopping by for another year. Their cover of Shine On You Crazy Diamond at Lockn’ in 2014 will never be forgotten.
Keller Williams Grateful Gospel and Grateful Grass will delight those in attendance once more. Make sure you make it to each set he plays during the festival. You will thank me later.
Rounding out this year’s lineup is Galactic, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Turkuaz, Twiddle, Vulfpeck, and White Denim.
More artists will be announced at a later date. Lockn’ is already off to a brilliant start and I hope to see many of you there.
Peace and love!
