CHARLESTON, SC (CelebrityAccess) — The rock band Umphrey’s McGee announced plans to host the inaugural Woodlands Fall Music & Arts Festival.
The two-day curated music festival will feature Umphrey’s McGee playing four sets over two days on November 8-9 at Charleston Woodlands, a 6000-acre private nature reserve in Charleston, South Carolina.
Along with the planned performances by Umphrey’s McGee, the festival features two stages of music with a lineup that includes Big Something, CBDB, Empire Strikes Brass, Heather Gillis Band, Manic Focus, Runaway Gin, Spafford, Sunsquabi, The Movement, theNEWDEAL, Voodoo Visionary, and Zach Deputy, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
“Umphrey’s McGee is thrilled to call Charleston our 2nd home ever since Ryan Stasik, our bassist, & I moved here in 2013,” says the band’s longtime manager, Vince Iwinski.
“We have actively been looking for a good home for an Umphrey’s anchored festival and when I first stepped foot on the grounds of Charleston Woodlands, I knew we had found it. This festival will offer the perfect combination of aesthetics; incredible natural beauty and top-notch rock show production.” Stasik, a Charleston resident since 2012, says of his hometown, “Every time we step on stage in Charleston, there’s a strong energy in the air. Seeing family and all the CHS fans out there is truly special, we look forward to taking it to the next level this November,” Iwinski added.
Along with the music, the festival will offer outdoor activities, such as hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, as well as full hammock support. The festival has also partnered with local food artisans too offer a wide range of sumptuary fare, ranging from food trucks to some of Charleston’s top culinary selections.
