The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and Mickey Hart are the latest additions to the lineup at the Lockn' Music Festival. Weir will perform as the Featured Guest Of The Day appearing in unique Artist collaborations on Saturday, September 12th. Hart will curate a "deep rhythm experience" at Lockn's forest stage during two consecutive one-of-a--kind late-night presentations-tuning The Woods with sound, lights, and vibrations for unprecedented multi---sensory sets-and performing a third evening on the main stage with EOTO.
In addition to Weir and Hart, Lockn' Festival features their Grateful Dead bandmates Phil Lesh, performing with Carlos Santana, Chris Robinson, Warren Haynes, and others, and Bill Kreutzmann, who will perform with both Billy & The Kids and Jorma & Jack Celebrating 50 Years Of Jefferson Airplane.
"It is an honor to be invited to share the stage at Lockn' Festival with my musical brothers and sister, Phil Lesh, Warren Haynes, Phil's Band as well as my talented wife, Cindy Blackman Santana," Santana told Billboard magazine. "Each bring their own unique vision and touch that will make for a rainbow explosion of sound, resonance, vibration that will touch everyone at the center of their heart. I know my brother, Jerry Garcia, will be smiling down on us as we compliment and soar into the heavens to create a new landscape of light & love, where time, space and gravity disappears and it is just the music and your heart."
"After the magic of the 'Fare Thee Well' shows, we knew we had to figure out how to have Bobby and Mickey at Lockn'," said festival co-founder/co-promoter Peter Shapiro. "All four of the guys are coming to do their own thing, but just to have them all there with us in Arrington is sure to mean a lot to our extended Grateful Dead family."
