Zac Brown Band Southern Ground Music & Food Festival Extends to Nashville
Last year's Southern Ground Music & Food Festival was so successful, Zac Brown Band is doing it twice in 2012. Nashville is the lucky city that will play host to the food and music extravaganza on September 21-22, on the lawn at Riverfront Park. The second will take place Oct. 20-21 in Charleston, S.C., at the site of the inaugural festival, Blackbaud Stadium.
Presented by LandShark Lager and Jack Daniel's, the event -- dubbed the "ultimate sensory experience" -- will include an eclectic lineup of performers (to be announced soon), along with gourmet food prepared by award-winning chefs.
"As a fan, my dream would be to be right up there on stage with an act ... Someone would bring me a four-course meal with some really good wine and beer, and I'd be able to watch the show from right there," Zac Brown tells The Boot. "It's a full-sensory experience, not just the amazing bands and music. It's a foodie festival, as well. Gourmet food. I have a chance to show our fans the level of hospitality that we want to give them, to show them we pay attention to those kind of details."
Ticket pre-sale for fan club members will begin June 5 at 1:00 PM ET for the Nashville festival, with the general sale opening June 7 at 11:00 AM ET. Tickets for the Charleston event are already on sale. In both cities, Zac Brown Band will headline the two nightly shows. Click here for tickets and more information.
Additionally, the band is once again offering the 'Front Porch Stage Box' deal, which includes on-stage seating, complimentary drinks and a meal prepared by a team of chefs under the supervision of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin. Rusty is Zac's partner in the band's famous 'Eat and Greets,' feeding hundreds of fans a spread of southern comfort food before every show -- most of which is made from the guys' own recipes.
"We put so much love and care into putting it together," says Zac, "we really feel like it's well worth your money and people will leave inspired with your bellies full."
