Moon River 2020 Lineup: Sheryl Crow, Yola, Indigo Girls, Nickel Creek, Billy Strings & More
Tennessee's Moon River Music Festival has announced the lineup for its September 2020 fest, featuring GRAMMY winners Sheryl Crow and Nickel Creek as headliners. 2020 Best New Artist GRAMMY nominee Yola, GRAMMY-winning legends Indigo Girls and the Rebirth Brass Band, as well as longtime gospel powerhouses The McCrary Sisters, will also perform.
The festival, which is in its seventh year, will also feature a set from founder/curator Drew Holcomb, with his band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. Billy Strings, Dawes, Shovels & Rope, Molly Tuttle and Natalie Hemby also join this year's lineup.
The two-day festival returns to Chattanooga, Tenn. for the third time, after relocating from its original, smaller venue in Memphis in 2018. The fest will be taking place Sept. 12–13, along with a special kick off concert on Sept. 11—a live taping of NPR's "Live From Here with Chris Thile" at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium. Participating artists for this show will be announced at a later date, with Moon River ticketholder getting pre-sale access on Feb. 19.
Moon River prides itself in giving back to the local community, and has donated over $20,000 in annual ticket donations non-profit partners including Friends of Outdoor Chattanooga and St. Jude Children's Hospital of Tennessee.
"In just a few short years, Moon River Festival has become one of the most eagerly anticipated annual events in our community," said Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke.
Event founder Holcomb is also excited: "Absolutely thrilled to invite folks back to Coolidge Park in beautiful Chattanooga, Tenn. this September. I could not be more proud of this year's lineup and cannot wait to share the stage with them!"
Remaining tickets (the pre-sale happened last week) go on sale Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. EST. For more info on the lineup and tickets, visit their website.
