In other PITS news, organizers recently announced the supporting acts for the destination event. Last Wednesday’s announcement confirmed that both weekends will see supporting sets by L.A.-based funk-jam outfit The Main Squeeze, Nashville singer-songwriter Margo Price, and blues-rock guitar maven Celisse. The destination events will also feature late-night sets by The Main Squeeze, Femme House founder and producer/multi-instrumentalist LP Giobbi, and Cleveland, OH rock-reggae-funk troupe Tropidelic.
The 2022 installment will mark the first time that Dead & Company has hosted the event over two separate weekends. PITS added an additional event due to overwhelming demand when the first weekend quickly sold out. For more information on Playing In The Sand 2022, head to the event website.
