After the monumental success of last year’s Southern Ground Music & Food Festival in Charleston, SC, Zac Brown Band & friends are expanding their ultimate sensory experience to Nashville. The festival, presented by LandShark Lager and Jack Daniel’s, will descend on Music City’s The Lawn at Riverfront Park on Friday & Saturday, September 21-22, in addition to the second annual event in Charleston this October.

Ticket pre-sale for fan club members will begin Tuesday June 5 at 12pm CT, and general sale opens on Thursday June 7 at 10am CT.

Voted “Best Music Concert of 2011” (by Charleston City Paper readers) the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival has awed the ears, eyes, and stomachs of fans by bringing together some of ZBB’s favorite musicians, craft vendors and artists and mouth-watering food and beverage delights.

VIP ticketing options and travel packages are available including Zac Brown Band’s customized Front Porch Stage Boxes. The boxes provide concert-goers with on-stage seating and a gourmet meal prepared by a team of renowned chefs under the helm of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin. Guests in the boxes will also be served with complimentary beverages: premium beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks.

Two-day festival passes start at $89. Gates will open at 3pm on Friday with the first show at 3:45pm; on Saturday, gates will open at 12pm for music beginning at 12:30pm. Zac Brown Band will grace the stage both nights.
