Beach Road Weekend Presented by the Black Dog has revealed the daily schedule for the 2022 festival. This year, the music will begin each morning at 10:45 with 30 of the top bands touring the country today. The festival will wrap up at 8:00 PM each night. The party will then continue at the Loft in Oak Bluffs as RIPE (Friday), Sammy Rae & the Friends and The National Reserve (Saturday), and Guster (Sunday) perform.
Saturday at Bonnaroo 2022 began bright and early with so many activities that it was nearly impossible for festival goes to absorb much of what was happening around them. Even before the music began early in the day, there were yoga lessons, marathons, workshops, group gatherings, and parades all about the campgrounds. By the time New Zealand pop singer Benee appeared on the giant Which stage just after 2 pm, a large crowd had already gathered in Centeroo.
Beck, Wilco, The Avett Brothers, and Billy Strings, Khruangbin, Jason Isebll & The 400 Unit, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams and more all part of Beach Road Weekend 2022
The String Cheese Incident rolled into their final night of their annual Red Rocks run with all cylinders firing, and while it was with utmost disappointment the band announced Phil Lesh would no longer be joining them due to a positive COVID test, a “good friend” would be stepping in to support and honor the music and spirit of the Grateful Dead.
Earlier this year, Bozeman, Montana’s Kitchen Dwellers released their third full-length album Wise River. Since the release, the band has skyrocketed to consistently packed out venues and festival appearances with no signs of slowing down. This past Sunday, July 3 following Billy Strings’ performance at Pier Six Pavillion in the Baltimore Harbor, the grammy-winning flat picker surprised fans by making a guest appearance at the Dwellers’ after-party at the 8x10.
The first time I heard the words Billy and Strings in the same sentence I was bit confused. My friend Michelle told me Billy Strings was playing at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Fort Collins, Colorado. I said ‘Boy, with a name like that this cat better be good, that's a lot of pressure!’ Well, several years have passed since then and Billy has proven to the world that he is deserving of the nick-name Billy Strings, his aunt gave him the when she first saw his musical abilities on multiple traditional bluegrass instruments.
