Florida’s annual Wanee Music Festival starring The Allman Brothers Band is now selling advance tickets … The Ride Festival in Telluride, Colo., announces its July dates and sets early-bird sales for the end of this month ... MOOG announces curators and last days of early-bird sales.
Although Live Nation has yet to release a lineup for the 10th anniversary Wanee Music Festival scheduled for April 10-12 at Spirit Of The Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak, Fla., one thing is for certain – The Allman Brothers Band will be there, as always, to play at and host the event.
As you might guess, the limited amount of early-bird three-day tickets sold as fast as Wanee could process transactions and now the festival has moved to advance tickets. These three-day passes that include primitive camping and priced at $195 are available now. Click here for the skinny.
As to the lineup, LN says that important piece of information will be announced soon. As the old saying goes, “Good things come to those who wait.” Past Wanee lineups included Widespread Panic, Furthur, Steve Miller Band, The Black Keys and Robert Plant with Band Of Joy.

In its third year, The Ride Festival at the Town Park in Telluride, Colo., July 12-13 will launch its early-bird sale Dec. 30 at 10 a.m. MST.
The Ride Festival also announced it is partnering with LickonaVision, which produces PBS’ “Austin City Limits” and is a force behind Austin City Limits Live At The Moody Theater which won Pollstar’s Concert Industry Award for best new venue of 2011. “Austin City Limits” producers Terry Lickona and Jeff Peterson will work with ACL Live booker Jack McFadden and KOTO fm and original Ride Festival Promoter Todd Creel. The alliance will also result in highlights of the festival being aired as an ACL Presents special episode on PBS later in the year.
“Telluride has a magic that is almost hypnotizing,” Lickona said. “Nature and enjoying the outdoors is my second passion after music, and the two seem like a natural combination for me. Experiencing live music in a setting like Telluride is inspiring for both the performers and the fans.”
Of course, any reason is a good reason for a party and the folks behind The Ride Festival will celebrate today’s announcement with a free shindig planned for the Sheridan Opera House Dec. 30. Admission is first come, first served with those who purchased early-bird tickets getting priority entry.
Expect the lineup to be released in early 2014. Visit RideFestival.com for more information.
