WILDWOOD REVIVAL 2022

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 6/8/22

September 30 – October 2 at Cloverleaf Farm

The countdown to Wildwood Revival 2022 is on!  Wildwood’s unique combination of an idyllic southern countryside, amazing new music, local food vendors and artists, and a VIP-like experience for attendees make it one of the most unique music events of the year. 
 
Wildwood Revival 2022 is September 30 – October 2 at Cloverleaf Farm, about 12 miles southeast of Athens. This year’s lineup celebrates Athens’ storied music scene and includes:
 
Black Pumas
Jenny Lewis
The Wood Brothers
John Moreland
Suzanne Santo
Elizabeth Cook
The Heavy Heavy
Bones of J.R. Jones
Early James
Packway Handle Band
Zach Person
Leon III
J.P. Harris
 
 
“The 2022 lineup reflects our passion for live music and discovering new music,” said Libby Rose, Wildwood Festival co-founder. “From Americana to Rock n’ Roll, Soul to Bluegrass, Roots music to alternative Country, this slate of artists represents the diversity of the music scene in Athens and across Georgia.”
 
“At Wildwood, everything is about the experience!” Rose added. “From the stage nestled in a 100-year-old pecan grove to morning yoga and late night jam sessions around a campfire, Wildwood is for people who want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, connect with old friends and make new ones, and enjoy amazing music and artists. It’s a revival of the soul.”
 
Wildwood Revival also features food from local farmers and local vendors and an artisan market with vintage clothing, antiques, handmade crafts, printmakers and more. Sponsors reflect a select group that, like Wildwood Revival, seeks to deliver a top-quality experience, including YETI, Creature Comforts Brewing Company, Wild Basin Hard Seltzer, Four Roses Bourbon, Cathead Vodka, and In Blue Handmade.
 
 
“People who come to Wildwood experience all this plus amazing music and camaraderie,” said 
Rose. “We limit the number of tickets. Our goal is to do all we can to ensure every guest at Wildwood Revival feels like they are getting VIP treatment.”

JOE HERTLER & THE RAINBOW SEEKERS, ANNOUNCES APRIL 2021 TEN-SHOW RUN ACROSS TEXAS, TENNESSEE, GEORGIA, NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA & OHIO ALL OUTDOORS & SOCIALLY-DISTANT

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 3/22/21

Tickets on sale now.

Outdoors and socially distant, Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers are safely hitting the road with Proxima Parada throughout April 2021, beginning on April 16th at The Rustic in Dallas, TX, followed by an April 17th show at The Rustic in Houston, TX. On April 18th, the band concludes their Texas shows at Empire Garage in Austin, TX.

Their southern run continues at Yeehaw Brewing Company in Nashville, TN on April 21st, before Park Tavern at Piedmont Park in AtlantaGA hosts the band on April 22nd. Then, on April 23rd, the Rainbow Seekers hit Lenny Boy Brewing in Charlotte, NC, followed by Pour House in Charleston, SC on April 24thGreenville, SC sees the band next at Quest Brewing on April 28th. The band will head back to North Carolina, with a stop in Asheville at Salvage Station on April 29th, and the tour will come to a close in Columbus, OH at Woodland’s Tavern on April 30th.

As COVID-19 drastically altered life as we knew it, frontman Joe Hertler recalls the night in February 2020 when the band had to cancel their tour, and immediately rented a van to head home, embracing uncertainty and change like never before. “Change, I believe, is an expression of nature’s joy – and over the next year, we bunkered down, did what we were instructed to do, and learned to live our lives without live music. Humanity adapted, as it always does. I dare to say a sense of normalcy even emerged from the chaos, as we learned the value of patience.”

With a renewed sense of optimism, Hertler continues, “The lengthening light of spring will soon crack through winter’s shell – and it seems, perhaps, that we’re on track to return to life as it was. Outdoor, socially-distant show opportunities have been approved in many communities – and we, Rainbow Seekers, will be emerging from our dens.”

The band invites you to join them as they aim to bring a rainbow after the storm unleashed by a deadly pandemic. Joe echoes, “I have a feeling that 2021 is going to be one of the most refreshingly memorable years that any of us have yet to live.”
