Wanee Music Festival 2015 Lineup Announced: Widespread Panic, Earth, Wind & Fire, Gov't Mule

Each year, Wanee Music Festival brings the joy of jamming, barefoot dancing, and the sweet smell of patchouli and Dr. Bronner's to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.

Founded by Allman Brothers' drummer Butch Trucks, you won't catch his classic act on stage this year given the band's October retirement. But Butch ain't missing the party. He's bringing some "Very Special Friends" with him to perform in 2015. The empty space left by the Allman Brothers proper is being filled with a mélange of jamming, funky, rocking acts you'll both recognize and that will make you smile.

Besides big names on the festival circuit like Widespread Panic (which'll be playing two shows) and Gov't Mule, there are funky acts like Earth, Wind & Fire. Also on the bill are a few locals like the Jacob Jeffries Band, Juke, and the Bobby Lee Rogers Trio. Keep clicking for the details on Wanee, taking place April 16 to 18.
