Following a summer tour that brought Georgia jam-soul heavyweights the Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic together for several months of collaboration, north Florida's Wanee Music Festival has upped the ante, bringing in just about every living member of Southern rock lore for a non-stop weekend celebration.
Along the banks of the Suwannee River (five hours from Charleston) on April 16-17, the camp-out, throw-down features sets of Panic and the Allmans each night, joined by Gov't Mule, The Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band, Bob Weir, Stephen Stills, Dr. John, Hot Tuna, Johnny Winter, George Clinton, the Funky Meters, the North Mississippi Allstars, The Word, The Black Keys, The Wailers, and many more.
Ticket prices are currently $178 for the weekend, including camping. Count on guest sit-ins at every show. With Dr. John in attendance, we're readying ourselves for the new millennium's most epic version of "I Walk on Guilded Splinters" to date.
