Following the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival‘s hugely successful debut in Nashville last year, Zac Brown Band and friends are at it again.  Presented by LandShark Lager, ZBB’s ultimate sensory experience will take place in Music City at The Lawn at Riverfront Park on Friday and Saturday, September 27 and 28.

Called “seamless” (Nashville Scene), “impressive” (Hollywood Reporter), and all together “unbelievable” (AOL The Boot), the festival will feature sets by Willie Nelson & Family, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Eli Young Band, Kacey Musgraves, The Head and the Heart, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, among additional names to be announced soon.

Continuing the festival’s annual tradition – which the band kicked off last year with iconic artists such as Gregg Allman, Sheryl Crow and John Mayer – ZBB’s “Super Sets” will close both nights with special sit-in performances by Kenny Chesney, John Fogerty, Jason Mraz and more. As American Songwriter said about the 2012 fest, “Zac Brown does indeed know how to throw a party.”

Ticket pre-sale for Zac Brown Band fan-club members begins on Wednesday, April 24 at 12pm CT. Pre-sale opens to those who attended last year’s festival on Thursday, April 25 at 10am CT. General sale opens on Saturday, April 27 at 10am CT.

VIP ticketing options are available, including Zac Brown Band’s customized Front Porch Stage Boxes, which provide concertgoers with onstage 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 are served complimentary beer, wine, liquor and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as gourmet cuisine from ZBB’s mobile kitchen.

Two-day festival passes start at $99. Gates open at 2pm CT on Friday and at 12pm CT on Saturday.
