Updating the already amazing lineup for the Wanee Festival: The Word (John Medeski, Robert Randolph, and North Mississippi Allstars) has just been added, making this event even harder to resist.
In other Warren Haynes-related news, Hunter, New York’s Mountain Jam Festival has just released their lineup. It is in a similar but slightly quirkier vein than Wanee. The initial announcement includes Gov’t Mule, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Avett Brothers, Les Claypool, Toots and the Maytals, Yonder Mountain String Band, Matisyahu, Dark Star Orchestra, Dave Mason, Lettuce, ALO, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, Elmwood, and The London Souls.
On the Bonnaroo-mur mill, it now appears very likely that The Avett Brothers will be performing in Manchester this year. Other strong possibilities include reunited alt-rock gods Pavement along with Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alberta Cross, GWAR, and Steep Canyon Rangers. Looks like they’re off to a typically amazing start if any of these rumors hold water.
