There aren’t a lot of reasons to visit Florida, but one excellent reason is for the Suwannee Roots Revival music festival, which is scheduled to take place October 14 – 17, 2021 at The Spirit Of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak. The lineup features a lot of talented musicians, many of whom have played the festival in previous years.
Sam Bush is scheduled to kick off the show with a two-hour set on Thursday the 14th, so forget the idea that all the action is on Friday and Saturday. Also on the bill that first day are Darrell Scott and Leftover Salmon. Leftover Salmon will also perform on Friday, along with Jim Lauderdale, Steep Canyon Ranchers, Donna The Buffalo, Jon Stickley Trio, and Keller & The Keels. Saturday’s lineup includes The Infamous Stringdusters, Peter Rowan & The Free Mexican Airforce, Larry Keel Experience, Verlon Thompson and Bowregard. Sunday will feature another set by Donna The Buffalo. And for you fellow Grateful Dead fans, The Grass Is Dead will be performing bluegrass renditions of some of your favorite songs at this festival.
There will of course be plenty of food and arts and crafts for sale (so if you forget to pack something, don’t worry). The park includes spots for RVs and dozens of cabins to rent, as well as more traditional camping areas, with space for your vehicles. So everything you need is there.
Tickets go on sale on June 17th at 10 a.m. eastern time. Early Bird tickets will be available, as well as student tickets. And if you can’t make it for the entire festival, three-day, two-day and single-day tickets will be offered.
