Toots & The Maytals are the latest act to be added to the lineup for this year’s LOCKN’ Festival. True architects of reggae, the Jamaican music group–led by Toots Hibbert–is best known for their ska and rocksteady originals, like “54-46 Was My Number”, “Funky Kingston”, “Country Road”, and “Pressure Drop”. Originally formed in the early 1960s, Toots & The Maytals remain key figures in popularizing reggae music worldwide.
Toots & The Maytals will join previously-announced artists Dead & Company (four sets over two days), Umphrey’s McGee (three sets over two days), Tedeschi Trucks Band (two sets over two days), Turkuaz, Lettuce (three sets over two days, including a tribute to Jerry Garcia Band), George Clinton & P-Funk, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and The Suffers. As previously reported, LOCKN’ will be making new lineup additions every day until the complete bill is released on February 8th. You can check out the artist rollout, including set times, via LOCKN’s website.
LOCKN’ returns to Infinity Downs Farm from August 23rd through 26th. Tickets for the festival will go on sale at noon EST on Friday, February 9th. For more information about LOCKN’ or for ticketing, head over to the event’s website here.
