The genre-melding Zac Brown Band have announced the lineups to both of their likewise integrated food/music festivals set for the fall. While both of the festivals will see nightly super sets by Zac Brown Band and feature Michael Franti & Spearhead, Jerry Douglas and a host of Southern Ground Artists, each festival will also offer a number of additional acts.

On Sept. 21-22, the festival will make its first stop in Nashville, TN’s Lawn at Riverfront Park, where Amos Lee, David Gray and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros will headline. Additionally, Gregg Allman will join Zac Brown Band onstage along with other special guests.

On October 20-21, the festival will descend upon Charlston, SC’s Blackbaud Stadium, where The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and Los Lonely Boys will head the bill.

Zac Brown Band has curated both the music and food at the festival, but rather than handling both the performing and cooking duties themselves, the band has entrusted Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin to manage the event’s culinary offerings.

For ticket information and set times, check out the festivals website. See below for the full list of performers.
