Wilco to Join Lockn’ Festival Lineup
Wilco is the latest addition to the Lockn’ Festival lineup that features the likes of Bob Weir & RatDog, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Allman Brothers Band, The String Cheese Incident and Widespread Panic, among others. Recently, the festival also added Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Steve Winwood, Gary Clark Jr. and Willie Nelson. The band will perform twice during the festival.
While Jeff Tweedy will hit the festival circuit this summer, the Lockn’ date serves as Wilco’s first scheduled show as a band. Nels Cline is currently working with Medeski, Martin and Wood along with the Nels Cline Singers while Mikael Jorgensen is currently in the process of reissuing an instrumental album. The band’s last release came in the form of 2011’s The Whole Love.
Lockn’ will return to Arrington, VA on September 4-7. Tickets are available via the festival’s website with travel packages and hotel/shuttle transportation also available.
