Shovels and Rope busted out the pink velvet for HWF 2018
It's time! The lineup for High Water Festival 2019 is here — and if you thought that Shovels & Rope, who founded the fest three years ago, would outdo themselves this year then you thought right. You thought absolutely right.
Headliners are Leon Bridges, the Head & the Heart, and Shovels & Rope, and other acts include Lord Huron, Dr. Dog, and Jenny Lewis.
Scroll down for the full list.
We hope you put away some pennies, because tickets go on sale to the public on Thurs. Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. The two-day festival, set for April 13-14, 2019 at North Charleston Riverfront Park, features a total of 22 acts plus Charleston chef-curated dining experiences, beer, wine, and cocktail immersions, and more.
Once again, the fest will kickoff the weekend with Low Tide Social, which features Lowcountry boil from the Smoking Pot, oysters from Seaborn Oyster Company, and music by the Shrimp Records Family Band. That's all on Fri. April 12 at Riverfront Park. In years past, the Social also featured other acts, like Lucinda Wiliams, Garage Cuban Band, and Ranky Tanky, so it'll be interesting to see if any other acts are announced. Seaborn will also return with their oyster education classes, complete with one-hour classes on oysters and oyster farming.
High Water continues to give back by partnering with the Green Heart Project, Charleston Waterkeeper, and Water Mission with the Earned Ticket Program. The initiative allows locals to volunteer for the nonprofits in exchange for festival tickets. Last year, folks put in a total of 2,000 hours of community service. Stay tuned for details on how to get in on that action again.
Don't forget to set your alarms for 10 a.m. on Thurs. Nov. 15 and get your tickets here
. See y'all in April!
