After adding a few special collaborations yesterday, Virginia’s LOCKN’ Festival continues to reveal more aspects of its 2018 schedule today with the announcement of this year’s Super VIP performance lineup, which will feature a rare pairing of guitarists Eric Krasno and Scott Metzger, plus music from Blues Traveler, Taj Mahal and DJ Logic.
Krasno and Metzger will team up on Saturday, August 25, in the VIP tent, and the duo also has an intimate NYC gig scheduled for August 21 at Rockwood Music Hall. In a recent interview with Jambands.com, Metzger spoke on the duo endeavor with the Soulive guitarist, saying, “We’ve been talking about doing something like that for probably five years now, but both of our schedules have been kind of crazy. Everybody’s all over the place, but we finally found a pocket of time that it would work.”
Taj Mahal and DJ Logic’s VIP sets will take place on Friday, with Logic returning on Saturday and Blues Traveler closing out the tent on Sunday. LOCKN’ Festival is set for August 23–26 at Infinity Downs & Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, VA, with a lineup featuring Dead & Company, Umphrey’s McGee, Widespread Panic, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lettuce, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Foundation of Funk, Sheryl Crow, Turkuaz, Keller Williams, Toots & The Maytals, Blues Traveler, Spafford, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Suffers, Ghost Light, Southern Avenue and more.
