The Phases Of The Moon Music + Art Festival proudly announces the addition of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals to the inaugural event taking place September 11-14 at Kennekuk County Park outside Danville, IL. Following the recent cancellation of all tour dates for Bob Weir & Ratdog, who were scheduled to perform at the festival on Friday, September 12, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals have graciously stepped in to fill the spot. The acclaimed quintet will perform right before the evening headliner featuring the debut of Lunar Landing Conspiracy, a multi-sensory, guest filled collaboration curated by members The String Cheese Incident.

Phases of the Moon Founder Sam Shear says, “Upon hearing the news of Bob Weir & Ratdog, we had three things to consider. Who would be a great fit for our first festival? Who would give the fans an incredible show? And, of course, who could do it on such short notice?”  Shear adds, “Grace Potter & The Nocturnals were at the top of that list and we are so excited and beyond grateful that they could make this happen, especially considering they have their own festival ( that same weekend. To coin a phrase that ties in with Phases of the Moon, the planets have lined up.”

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals join an impressive lineup that includes headliners The String Cheese Incident and Widespread Panic, along with Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov’t Mule, Leon Russell, Galactic, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Jackie Greene, Railroad Earth, Vintage Trouble, Donavon Frankenreiter, Sam Bush Band, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Martin Sexton, Anders Osborne, Leftover Salmon with Bill Payne of Little Feat, Kung Fu, The California Honeydrops, Toubab Krewe, Mingo Fishtrap, Futurebirds, Artist-In-Residence David Gans and many more.
