Tedeschi Trucks & Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Confirm Mini-Festivals At LOCKN’ Site
Add Tedeschi Trucks and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead to a list of bands hosting and headlining events at the site of the LOCKN’ Festival in Arrington, Virginia this August that also includes Goose's FRED the Festival. JRAD’s event takes place August 13 – 15 with Tedeschi Trucks’ mini-festival set for August 27 – 29.
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will play a total of six sets over the course of their event at The LOCKN’ Farm. The weekend will also feature performances from The Slip with John Medeski and Billy Martin hosting late-night action in Garcia’s Forest.
Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks will team with “a number of their frequent collaborators” according to Relix for Saturday and Sunday Tedeschi Trucks performances at the home of LOCKN’. Jon Batiste, The Marcus King Band, Lettuce and round out the lineup.
The reduced-capacity mini-festivals come in lieu of the LOCKN’ Festival which was slated to take place in October. “LOCKN’, the music festival, has had an amazing run, with hundreds of thousands of fans witnessing countless epic performances and collaborations by hundreds of legendary artists,” explained LOCKN’ promoter Peter Shapiro. “Given the realities of COVID-19 and the world we now live in, it feels like the right moment to do something new and a bit more intimate, while keeping the best of what the four-day festival has offered since 2013. This August, LOCKN’ will become a weekly destination — LOCKN’ FARM — a place with a history of good vibes and magic, and instead of hosting a single annual festival we will sprinkle the LOCKN’ spirit across multiple music and camping weekends. Positive things often emerge out of challenging times, and LOCKN’s evolution from a single-weekend festival to a place where bands can host their own special events is going to be one of them.”
