Lockn' Festival presents Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters for an exclusive two-night engagement that will feature two completely different sets on September 12 & 13, 2015. Plant has never done anything like this in his career, and it will undoubtedly make for some unique and historical moments.

Plant and the Space Shifters are touring in support of what many critics are calling his greatest solo album, lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar (Nonesuch/Warner Brothers), and the performances have been receiving raves across the globe. Rolling Stone said the band's Bonnaroo set was "one of the festival's must-watch gigs," and the Los Angeles Times hailed: "Reaffirming that the ever-adventurous Plant has used his legacy as a launching pad rather than a resting place, the singer and his band the Sensational Space Shifters fuse new and old material with bluegrass melodies, Celtic percussion, African fiddle, spooky electronica and mike-stand-twirling rock...they succeed in fusing an untouchable legacy with a passion for experimentation."

The 2015 Lockn' Festival is September 10-13th at the Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, VA, and

will also feature Phil Lesh & Friends with Carlos Santana, an exclusive performance of Mad Dogs & Englishmen featuring Tedeschi Trucks Band, Leon Russell and other special guests, Jorma & Jack celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Jefferson Airplane, Widespread Panic with special guest Jimmy Cliff,  Gov't Mule, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Doobie Incident featuring The Doobie Brothers with The String Cheese Incident, Little Feat, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and many more.
