Knoxville’s very own music festival, Waynestock, will be returning for the fourth year in a row. The event, which will take place at Relix Variety Theatre Jan. 30 - Feb. 1 and costs $5 per night, will feature performances by local musicians, as well as a songwriter symposium.
Artists and dates follow:
Thursday, January 30: Songwriter Symposium followed by the Greg Horne Band
Friday, January 31: Jodie Manross Band, Dixieghost, J.C. Haun and The Dirty Smokers, The French, The Crumbsnatchers, and Teenage Love.
Saturday, February 1: John Myers Band, Jamie Cook, Donald Brown, The Barstool Romeos, Senryu, and a Grand Finale Tribute to Lou Reed.
All of the proceeds will go to the E.M. Jellinek Center, a Knoxville-based non-profit organization that provides treatment and housing for chemically dependent men.
The first Waynestock took place in 2011 to support News Sentinel music writer Wayne Bledsoe after the unexpected death of his son. Support from local musicians and fans has led to the continuation of Waynestock.
