Winwood will perform at the Fairgrounds on Sunday April 25, while Wyclef Jean has been added to the event a week later, on May 2. Meanwhile, Lenny Kravitz, who had been slated to perform on April 30 and May 1, will now appear on April 24 at the Fest and the night before at the Municipal Auditorium on a bill with the Johnny Clegg Band.
