Trey Anastasio Band , Lynyrd Skynyrd, Umphrey’s McGee and moe. are among the acts slated to join event hosts The Allman Brothers Band at the 10th annual Wanee Music Festival. The Allman Brothers Band-themed event will return to Live Oak, FL’s Spirit of Suwannee Music Park from April 10-12. As usual several ABB family bands will also perform, such as Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov’t Mule, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and Royal Southern Brotherhood, the latter of which features Gregg Allman’s son Devon.

Other confirmed acts include: Ziggy Marley,
Blues Traveler, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Hot Tuna Electric, Rusted Root, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk (Music of Led Zeppelin), Soulive, Walter Trout, Rob Garza, Blind Boys of Alabama, Bobby Lee Rodgers, Melvin Seals & JGB, Futurebirds, Matt Schofield, Break Science, Sean Chambers and The Yeti Trio. Dumpstaphunk will perform the music of Led Zeppelin during their set.

Despite both helping create the southern rock genre, The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd have only shared a few joint bills during the past 45 years. As previously reported, both Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes will leave the Allmans after 2014.

Was really expecting a little more for the 10th Wanee

Clive Bigsby January 20, 2014, 12:04:09

Lynyrd Skynyrd? Really? Why??

Lackluster.

you guys are fucking morons… this looks sick

Jamman January 20, 2014, 16:47:48

I agree tell. This looks great. What more could you want?

This is an amazing lineup. Yes, Skynyrd as a headliner is a little strange, but if Moe. is the 12th band listed, its going to be a great weekend!!! Hope moe. and um are same day with one late night. Would love to see an old school moe. band switch one night, and SOULIVE another late night. Though i will assume Dumpstaphunk will be one of the late nights.

This lineup is stellar and deep. You don’t like it? Don’t go.

Don’t understand all this hate toward Skynyrd???? They’re rock n roll legends. I understand there’s only one original member in the band, but most are dead and most every other band for that era that still tours is only sporting a few original members. Maybe Artimus will come sit in with them, that’s his area. Stellar line up, wish I could go.

Read the line up and thought, yikes! Looks amazing. Then read the comments and thought, hope the festival scene isn’t doomed by people who think this lineup sucks because there is no skrillex, dangermouse or m&m.

Chris January 21, 2014, 12:11:04

the lineup isnt bad, skrillex being added would make it bad. I have been the past few years and really liked the lineups. I just was hoping for more than Skynyrd and TAB as the other headliners. I personally dont think its worth the drive for me at 13 hours but it will definitely be a good time. Lots of solid bands in one of the best venues in the country

Go for the Futurebirds! Southern music of the future!
