Originally begun by the Allman Brothers Band in 2005 as a two day event the Festival has continued to grow and strengthen its position as one of the top live music events in the country.   The Allmans wanted to create an experience with great music and great times for the many thousands of fans attending.  The music and lineup at Wanee, now a three day Festival with an extra Wednesday Happy Hour, is always incredible. But the band wanted the vibe and atmosphere of this festival to have something that will make it stand out as truly special. They chose Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for its natural beauty.  It sits on a massive 800 acres of rustic land where beautiful trees filled with Spanish Moss are in constant sight and the world famous Suwannee River is just a short walk away.  Wanee Music Festival 2018 . . . Be There!
