Just a few short weeks ago, festival fans mourned the loss of All Good Music Festival. While the promoters, All Good Presents, were forced to retire the event, that hasn’t stopped them from connecting with their favorite artists and putting together something brand new.
Today, All Good Presents has announced the formation of the Merryland Music Festival, to be held over two days at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD from July 9-10. With headliners The String Cheese Incident (2 Sets), Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, and Grace Potter, this is sure to be one great festival experience!
The lineup continues with more scene favorites, including Lotus, Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Greensky Bluegrass, Shakey Graves, Yonder Mountain String Band, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Nahko & Medicine For The People, Langhorne Slim & The Law, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, TAUK, Protoje, Cris Jacobs Band and ELM.
In addition, Papadosio and ELM will play a kick-off party at Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore, MD on July 8th, and The Soul Rebels and People’s Blues of Richmond will play a kick-off at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC on the 8th as well. There’s also a late night party on the 9th at the 9:30 Club, hosted by the group Kung Fu, featuring sit-ins from Karl Denson and more.
