LOCKN' has officially confirmed its initial lineup and schedule for 2018. While many festivals have altered programming to suit their bottom line, LOCKN' proved itself true to its core fanbase with a week of well-received, crowd-pleasing artist reveals. Headlined by Dead & Company in a rare festival appearance, performing four sets over two nights, the four-day camping event will also feature: Widespread Panic, Tedeschi Trucks Band performing two separate days), Sheryl Crow, Joe Russo's Almost Dead performing on two separate days, George Clinton & P-Funk, Umphrey's McGee (performing two separate days), Lettuce, Toots & The Maytals, Pigeons Playing Pingpong, Blues Traveler, Moon Taxi, Lukas Nelson & The Promise Of The Real, Turkuaz, The Suffers and more. The full schedule is below. LOCKN' is set to take place in Arrington, VA, August 23 - 26, at Infinity Downs, LOCKN's 387-acre property located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

A limited amount of LOCKN' 2018 Nice Price Tickets for go on sale tomorrow, February 9 at 12pm ET exclusively via locknfestival.com. The allotment is currently LOCKN's lowest priced ticket. They will sell out quickly and prices will then roll into Advance Tickets. This year, the festival will be offering a Three-Day Weekend Pass in addition to its traditional Four-Day Festival Pass. This new Three-Day Weekend Pass will allow those with tighter schedules to still see all the bands performing at LOCKN' for a lower price.

Last year, LOCKN' was applauded for its massive site upgrade as it took its famous Blue Ridge Bowl and expanded it for the first time to a newly centralized venue encompassing both the main stage and the Bowl's amphitheater, allowing the more than 20,000 fans to enjoy non-stop music all weekend long with improved sight lines and easy access to all the incredible food, drinks, shopping, and social action activities LOCKN' veterans have come to expect. The new and improved venue was more accessible to all camping sites, with additional shade and misting stations that provided extra respite from the summer heat and traffic routes were more direct and efficient as it made entering and exiting the festival smoother than ever before.
