The Black Keys, Brandi Carlile To Headline Inaugural Evolution Festival
The Black Keys and Brandi Carlile have been confirmed as headliners for the inaugural Evolution Festival.
The inaugural Evolution Festival is set to take place in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 26-27. The festival will take place in Forest Park at Langenberg Field and the Boathouse, located between the Muny (St. Louis Municipal Opera Theatre) and the Dwight Davis Tennis Center.
The festival will also feature The Black Crowes, Brittany Howard and Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals.
Among the other acts on the lineup are Ice Cube, Morgan Wade, Cautious Clay, Michigander, Modern English, Nikki Lane, The Sugarhill Gang, The Nude Party, Smidley, Carriers, The Knuckles, Yard Eagle and Punk Lady Apple.
“St. Louis is home. My partner Joe and I are both born and raised here, and we’ve both always worked hard to create unforgettable live entertainment experiences here for our hometown community,” said co-exec producer Steven Schankman. “We both agreed that there is something missing here, an event that will welcome everyone from our great city to come together to celebrate our diversity, inclusion, and to offer a renewed focus on our musical culture and the arts.”
He continued, “Evolution Festival does just that, and this event will not only create long-lasting memories, but it will be a strong economic driver for the city, the region, and the state for years to come, as well.”
Tickets for Evolution will go on sale on Friday, February 17, at 10 a.m. CST.
