Music Festivals are all about eclecticism and “fan experience,” but Zac Brown Band’s Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, set for Oct. 21-23 in Charleston, SC, is attempting to raise the bar.
The three day event, presented by Landshark and Jack Daniel’s, will be held at Blackbaud Stadium on Daniel Island in Charleston, and hopes to engage the senses of attendees with diverse music, gourmet food, a custom video projection screen and a Martin MLA sound system. Ticket pre-sale begins Sept. 9 for fan club members and the general sale starts Sept. 10 at 9 am CT.
In addition to three Zac Brown Band performances, the diverse musical lineup also includes handpicked ZBB favorites My Morning Jacket, Train, Eric Church, Fitz and the Tantrums, Warren Haynes Band, Steel Pulse, Trigger Hippy, The Del McCoury Band and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Brett Dennen, and performances by Southern Ground artists Sonia Leigh, The Wood Brothers, Nic Cowan, Levi Lowrey, Blackberry Smoke, and Clay Cook. A second stage will feature performances by additional musicians between main stage sets.
VIP tickets are also available, including ZBB’s Front Porch Stage Boxes. Purchasers get on-stage seating feet away from the performers; a four-course gourmet meal prepared by Southern Ground Exec. Chef Rusty Hamlin, Sean Brock, Mike Lata and RJ Cooper; and complimentary beverages.
