Jason Isbell is teaming with Outback Presents to launch Shoals Fest, a new music festival in the legendary area of Muscle Shoals in Alabama that will host its inaugural one-day gathering this fall with music from Isbell and his 400 Unit, Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples and Amanda Shires, with more artists to be announced.
“I’ve always wanted to bring a music festival to the Shoals, and McFarland Park is the perfect place to enjoy world-class artists and the beauty of the Singing River,” says Isbell, an Alabama native who worked at Muscle Shoals iconic FAME Studios as a teenager. “These acts are all personal favorites of ours, and we’re proud to bring them to our hometown and show them a good time. I hope y’all are as excited as we are about ShoalsFest 2019.”
Shoals Fest is set for October 5 at McFarland Park in Florence, AL. Only 5,000 tickets will be sold for the event. Tickets go on sale March 25 at 10 a.m. CT. All information can be found at the festival’s website.
