10 Things Not To Miss At LOCKN’ FESTIVAL

I am headed at this moment down to the 6th Annual LOCKN’ Music Festival and I cannot wait! This is my 3rd trip down to what is loveling known as ‘The Farm’ in Arrington, Virginia. This festival is the one I look most forward to every year because of its primary focus on jam bands and funk; moreover, the philosophy of the whole festival focuses on music improvisation and collaboration with artists that you wouldn’t usually see together. This festival’s brainchild is Peter Shapiro who is the founder of some iconic, cutting-edge venues like Brooklyn Bowl and The Capitol Theatre, not to mention he is the iconoclast that got the remaining Grateful Dead members (along with Trey Anastasio) to curate their final performances together dubbed “Fare Thee Well.” My favorite hashtag I have ever created is #peteshapiroismyhero and if you have ever been to any of his events or venues…you would know why!

REVIEW: Peach Festival recaptures Allmans’ spirit after tragedies of last year

The Peach Festival, if nothing else, is a communal event, a shared experience of the masses (about 20,000 strong) consisting of both young and old.

The Allman Brothers circle had an extremely tragic year in 2017, losing both Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks just months before the Allmans-curated Peach Festival returned for a sixth year at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA.

In retrospect, that might have been a bit too soon. Even that show’s tribute set to Allman and Trucks felt forced and melancholy. However, after time to reflect, this year’s Peach Festival, which kicked off Thursday and ran through Sunday night, seemed to more accurately capture The Allman Brothers spirit and moxie.

It did that by doing what the Allmans always seemed to do: jam on with that feeling that the show will never end.

It wasn’t just the sets by the remaining Allman Brothers members that did that, but clearly, a set by drummer Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band got it right.

Moogfest 2018 May 17-20 Durham, NC

Hip-Hop Legends Pete Rock and Ali Shaheed Muhammad Join Moses Sumney in Moogfest’s Final 2018 Lineup Additions

Moogfest began in 2004, marking the 50-year anniversary of Bob Moog’s first homemade Theremin. It started as a one-night party in New York City for Moog friends and musical collaborators before growing organically into a semiannual celebration of Bob Moog’s work and his community of synth enthusiasts. In 2010, Moogfest moved to Asheville and adopted a multi-venue festival format for electronic music, including a wide range of artists influenced by the analog synthesizer.
By 2014, the popularity of electronic music in America and the global explosion of festivals created a different context for Moogfest: no longer was the music festival a sufficient platform for experimentation and conversation. To complement the nighttime performances, a technology conference was added to the program, bridging the divide between engineering and artistry.
