Freeway Music Festival 2017 Lineup is Out!
This morning at City Roots members of the media and local artists gathered for the release of the stellar 2017 Freeway Music Festival lineup headlined by Austin, Texas songwriter Joe Pug joined by a host of great local acts.
More than ever, this year’s lineup features a diverse crop of bands from across South Carolina, including rising Charleston acts The High Divers, The Mobros, 2 Slices, and Secret Guest, along with Columbia’s FatRat Da Czar, King Vulture, Dempsey, Alarm Drum, sandcastles., Ropeswing Marathon, Bellavia, Numbtonuge, and Post Timey String Band. The festival, which has music kicking off at 3PM has a loaded day lineup with great music happening all day between Tin Roof, two stages in Music Farm, and the WXRY acoustic stage.
This year is especially exciting with proceeds going to Songs 4 Life Charity and more specifically their Food 4 Life campaign. This year you’ll get to see where that money goes first hand, as they’ll be building an Aquaponics Greenhouse on the City Roots complex. While we were out there this morning there were several field trips going on, with kids learning about farming first hand. Funds from this year’s festival will not only go towards building that greenhouse, but also to solar panels, seeds, fish and tangs required to maintain the eco-system.
Get your tickets early! A limited amount of $7.50 early bird tickets go on sale March 24th @10:00am, so be sure to get yours while they’re hot.
