Zac Brown’s Shindig
[photogallerylink id=66042 align=right] When it comes to the music no one thinks more about the fans than the [lastfm link_type=""]Zac Brown[/lastfm] Band. But this time around they’re taking it to a new level. The band is hosting a three-day food and music festival.
The party is on Oct. 21-23 and it will be held at Riley Park in Charleston, S.C. Zac says: “This is a big statement for us.” “This is a sign of the future, of how we’re going to be approaching our fans and our shows and our Southern Ground festivals.” Brown said the stage will extend to the right and to the left of general admission and stage boxes will be set up on each side. Now here comes the good part, fans in these areas will be served food prepared by chefs throughout the day. Brown’s also taking over all the concessions in the park. Brown went on to say: “This is real wine and real food.” “It’s not just what’s cheap. It’s not a $12 bag of nachos with some Cheez Whiz on them.” Jack Daniel’s will have a presence at the festival under a new partnership with the band. It’s the first formal sponsorship deal with a music act in more than a decade for the whiskey maker. Jeff Arnett, Jack Daniels master distiller said this about the band: “What we liked about the Zac Brown Band in particular was they are someone who could play the Ryman one night and Bonnaroo or Coachella the next night.” A lineup and more details about the festival will be released at a later date.
