More Wakarusa artist additions

The folks at Wakarusa have added another sixteen artists to this year’s lineup and topping the list are The Black Crowes. Although the Crowes were here just last August at the AMP, an addition of this magnitude will certainly help quench the thirst of those wondering when the bigger names were going to be announced.

Not to downplay any of the previously announced bands by any means but in the past, the festival has seen names like Wilco and The Flaming Lips so for many, this should come as good news.

For those not in the know, The Black Crowes now feature Luther Dickinson on guitar. Luther is most famous for his other band, North Mississippi Allstars. Well, that and being the son of legendary musician/producer Jim Dickinson.

Other bands announced today include Gov’t Mule, Shpongle, Eat Static, Langhorne Slim, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm, Jessie Baylin, Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Old School Freight Train, Hoots and Hellmouth, Wax Fang, Chuck Love, Public Property, My-Tea Kind and Radiohiro.
