Suwannee Rising 2021 Lineup: Umphrey’s McGee, Lettuce, Goose & More
Eric Krasno’s Chapter 2, Andy Frasco & The U.N., Big Something, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio and Mark Lettieri Group are also aboard for this year’s Suwannee Rising. Magnolia Boulevard, Melody Trucks Band and Anthill Cinema round out the lineup.
Music will be presented at two stages located next to each other in one of the venue’s large fields. The setting will allow for plenty of social distancing in what organizers are referring to as P.O.D.S. (Personal Outdoor Dance Space). Video screens will be set up so that attendees can easily watch any of the performances from their P.O.D.S.
“When we canceled Suwannee Rising 2020, we never imagined the challenges it would present to society and especially the live music industry,” noted organizer Paul Levine. “We viewed the situation with a glass half-full attitude, realistic but hopeful. No one wanted to accept a world without the live music experience. After producing two intimate post-Covid shows at the park and attending other drive-in events, we learned that while no one can eliminate 100% of risk from their lives, it is possible to produce a great show that fans, staff, and artists can attend and still dance and feel safe. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our musical community over the last year through the twists and turns of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
