This year’s Wanee Music Festival will welcome Phil Lesh to the top of the lineup along with the Terrapin Family Band for their 2018 event stretching April 19-21. Widespread Panic will once again return to headline alongside Lesh as well. The Grateful Dead bassist will make a rare appearance at Wanee with two nights of music (Panic will also play two nights) alongside his Terrapin Crossroads house band.
Additional performers on the initial lineup include Allman Brothers alumni like Marc Quinones’ Eat a Bunch of Peaches project with George Porter Jr. as well as Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and Berry Oakley’s Indigenous Suspects. Pink Talking Fish will also present an ABB tribute set with their “tied to the Whipping Post” show.
