Once Again, Widespread Panic helps escalate this shindig in the woods, and It's All Good.
All Spreadheads and blues soaked jam rock fans rejoice, as Widespread Panic descends on the 14th annual All Good Festival in Masontown WV; July 8-11 2010. They are far from alone leading the way with Further (feat. Phil Lesh and Bob Weir). In addition there are a superb array of artists such as: Keller Williams, Femi Kuti, Bassnectar, YMSB, George Clinton and The P-Funk All Stars and Dark Star Orchestra to illuminate your summer festival highlight reel with.
For Widepsread Panic, this will be a brilliant boogie spectacle near the end of a string of wonderful summer tour shows. All of this begins on June 5th at Wakarusa Music Festival in Arkansas, then several nights at the always sold out Red Rocks in Colorado, onto the luscious High Sierra Music Festival in California, next full-tilt boogie time in West Virginia at All Good Festival, finally closing summer at Forecastle Festival in Kentucky. They will be freewheelin' through another immensely successful summer festival season; as they release an 11th studio album "Dirty Side Down", on May 25th.
Now, for anyone not familiar with the venue Marvin's Mountaintop; it is a unique 655 acre slice of gorgeous Appalachian foothills. It offers the chance to blend lush musical landscapes of the highest standards with panoramic outdoor enjoyment. Which if like me, you prefer the medium sized festival scene to the overly inflated others; this is the 'Phamily' kind of gathering we all seek. All Good Festival will continue its tradition of intimate but musically expansive festivals. This year will be offered with over 40 hours of music, with "No Overlapping Sets". If your synaptic processes are connecting then you probably just realized the potential for days of musical bliss; without having to forgo the start of one act for the end of another.
Widespread Panic as in years past, will produce an enchanting mountaintop festival experience; along with a stellar cast of musical cohorts. I hope all of you have the serendipity to join me, in the revelry of another Panic induced All Good Festival.
