The annual All Good Festival is relocating this year to Legend Valley in Thornville, OH, a big move from its long-time home at Marvin’s Mountaintop in West Virginia. The new space is bigger, and is making room for the festival to expand its lineup in size and number of headliners to become arguably the premier jamband festival in the country. This year’s lineup features: Phil Lesh and Friends, The Allman Brothers Band, The Flaming Lips, Weir/Hornsby/Marsalis, Michael Franti & Spearhead, G.Love, Galactic, Sphongle, Mickey Hart Band and many, many, many more names. And this is just the initial lineup!
Stay tuned for lots more band to be added to the bill, this is shaping up to be the fest of the summer for jamband purists. I think they’ve struck a nice mix of rock, electronic, and other sub-jam genres as well as a very generous helping of modern Grateful Dead offerings. Kudos to the promoters and organizers for their work thus far, and here’s to hoping the new location is a great success.
