The folks behind CaveFest have delivered their second annual artist lineup for the three-day live music extravaganza, which is scheduled to take place from Oct. 6 through 8 at The Caverns in Grundy County, Tenn.

“CaveFest was a dream come true last year, an ideal festival featuring favorite bands in the best autumn weather in the perfect place. Glad this dream is recurring and we’re excited to see the event grow to three days in 2023!” The Caverns owner Todd Mayo offered.

Also making the upcoming event’s artist lineup are Jim Lauderdale, Town Mountain, The Lil Smokies, Sam Grisman Project: Plays Garcia/Grisman’s Shady Grove Album, Jon Stickley Trio, Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley, Larry Keel Experience, The HillBenders: Play WhoGrass, Sicard Hollow and more.
