LOCKN’ Confirms Dead & Co Will Headline Two Nights

By Will Urquhart / February 1, 2018

The rumors were true, and today Peter Shapiro confirmed that Dead & Company will headline two nights of the 2018 LOCKN' Festival, telling Rolling Stone, "We are honored to have Dead & Company headline back-to-back nights because it's so rare. This festival was built on the spirit of the Grateful Dead so their performance is going to be a very big deal for Deadheads everywhere."

The festival is no stranger to several members of this band, but this year marks the first appearance by the full Dead & Company band. Stay tuned for more lineup announcements shortly as they plan to announce one new act each day over the course of a week starting on Friday. Get tickets today at the LOCKN' website. And check out our "Artist Spotlight" page for the Dead & Company to find more photos of the band.
