DARK STAR ORCHESTRA (7pm Outdoor Stage):

Performing to critical acclaim for over 20 years and over 2800 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead live concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead’s extensive catalog and the talent of these seven fine musicians. On any given night, the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra’s members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations.

PETER ROWAN (3;45pm Outdoor Stage):

Grammy-award winner Peter Rowan is a singer-songwriter with a career spanning over five decades.   From his early years playing under the tutelage of Bluegrass veteran Bill Monroe, to his time in Old & In the Way and his breakout as a solo musician and bandleader, Rowan has built a devoted, international fan base through a solid stream of recordings, collaborative projects, and constant touring.

MIDNIGHT NORTH (5:15pm Outdoor Stage):

Immediately after their sophomore studio release, 2015’s Scarlet Skies, Midnight North – fronted by lead songwriters Elliott Peck & Grahame Lesh with lush Hammond B3 organ, and harmony work from Alex Jordan and stomping bass lines from Connor O’Sullivan – began touring the country in earnest, visiting the East Coast and the Midwest for the first time in summer 2015. The band wrote the majority of Under the Lights in the following months, and the lyrical road themes – the initial excitement, the longing for home, and the inherent need to keep moving – shine through.

JOSH PHILLIPS FEEL GOOD (11:05 Taproom Stage):

THE CAMPFIRE REVERENDS (4:30pm Taproom Stage):

THE SNOZBERRIES (6:15pm Taproom Stage):

What are The Snozzberries? Swirling psychedelia, funk and fusion in lively whirlwind of sonic pleasure, The Snozzberries are Asheville’s freakiest musical pioneers. This high-energy powerhouse channels the head-bobbing grooves of Vulfpeck, the oddity of Primus, and the intensity of Umphrey’s McGee.
