Hot August Music Festival Announces Lineup Fire!

Yes, indeed, it will be one smokin’ Hot August Music Festival on Saturday, August 28, with the return of the event to Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville MD, presented by Rouge Fine Catering. Lineup dropped Friday, and early bird tickets are on sale NOW — while supplies last!

As always, the festival organizers have curated a top-notch array of musicians from a variety of genres, beginning with the superb Greensky Bluegrass, a bluegrass that rocks — hard, and Shakey Graves, excellent Americana musician from Austin.

Two of the bands that recently tore up Suwannee Rising Music & Arts Festival will be on hand. When they hit their stride, there is no better funk band — anywhere — than Lettuce. And speaking of tearing up, that is likely what will happen when you allow Andy Frasco & the U.N. and their insanity into your town. You’ve been forewarned, and you’ll love ever second of it.

Blues just don’t get much deeper than the Clarksdale, Mississippi version, and that’s exactly what Christone “Kingfish” Ingram plays. Dancing Bears are a Grateful Dead tribute band, and here’s betting you can guess what artist Petty Coat Junction plays and pays homage to.
