It looks like we are getting a new announcement each day this week from the Lockn’ Festival organizers! After consecutive announcements about Widespread Panic & The Allman Brothers Band making appearances at the 2nd annual event, we have now learned that Phil Lesh & Friends is confirmed to play this year as well!

Lockin’ Festival will take place September 4th – 7th in Arrington, Virginia. Tickets are on sale here.

Phil Lesh is entering his 16th year of playing with a rotating mix of Friends, both old and new. Phil began playing under the moniker Phil Lesh and Friends in 1998, after he returned to performing following the death of his friend and band mate Jerry Garcia in 1995. With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by constantly and consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together toward keeping the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward into the future.
