Suwanne park is absolutely the best place for a festival. It's the gem of living here in north Florida. You can't ask for a better setting; real camping under the pines and magnolias, spanish moss hangin' behind the main stage field, cozy shops and vendors, a second stage under the trees with very organic amphitheatre seating. They have a couple bluegrass oriented festivals in the spring and fall as well with premier acts.

But the Allman's party last year here was probably my favorite festival. Well, not probably... for sure. The talent last year was first rate, and is this year as well. Of course the spotlight is 2 nights of Allmans fresh off thier annual Beacon run. New Monsoon absolutely is mindblowing, and so is Railroad Earth (both played here at Magnolia fest too, welcome back boys ;) ). Derek Trucks is truly a virtuoso of our time, and his band is off the hook. Throw in the Wailers, Dirty Dozen, the moonshine infused sounds of the Allstars... man...so glad I bought my tix months ago ;) See ya there!

Spirit of the Suwanee is by far the coolest venue I've ever step foot in. Minimal crowds, beautiful babes.. I mean, Spanish Moss, and ample camping space. I've been the last 2 years (SCI and Wanee Festival), and have been looking forward to this year since the last note of the ABB 2nd set last year. GT's with the solid six - and the addition of MMW?! Are ya kiddin me?
I've been to 6 World Series and a goat f*ckin, and I ain't never seen nothing like this...

Been waiting for Wannee for sometime now. QUITE a strong strong lineup. I can already feel the energy of so many great musicians all on 2 stages! Best weekend of the year; i can't help but to laugh everytime I think of it! Hope to see everyone there. If you're coming from around Columbus, GA, drop me a line.

I am super pumped for this party!!!! So pumped in fact that my girlfriend and I are coming all the way from Maine. I kind of liken it to a devout Christian on a pilgimage to see the Pope......except the Pope is Butch Trucks and all of the disciples are on drugs. WOOOOO-HOOOOO!!!!!

This is the best festival of the year. It’s just my opinion, but MMW and Allmans might be my two favorite bands. Plus New Monsoon and Otiel’s peacemaker band, plus Derek and the Lee boys, plus North Mississippi All stars all in one of the best camping festival venues ever………..Ohhhhh snizzle sticks……….All I can say is I’m considering flying in from Japan just to be there and that is no joke.

I have to agree, this festival is top of the list as one of the best of the year, no joke. Made the trip down from Chicago last time, flying down from Toronto for it this year ~ it's worth the trek! Between the beautiful surroundings, great stages, well-run vending scene, good, real bathrooms instead of just portolets, great kind peaceful crowd, golf cart rentals and of course the bands... it's hippie heaven....
