Debut festival fills Main Stage lineup with blues, metal and punk
SoundHarvest Music Festival is pleased to announce the complete Main Stage lineup for the festival on Saturday, October 17, 2015, that will take place on the Parthenon Lawn in Centennial Park from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. In addition to previously announced headliner The Flaming Lips, and other acts Allen Stone and The Weeks, the Main Stage will also include sets from Benjamin Booker, The Last Internationale, Goodbye June and Scotty Bratcher.
Critically-acclaimed Benjamin Booker fuses soul, punk and blues together in a way that’s left festival fans speechless this summer. He’s toured promoting his eponymous debut album that is full of songs he originally wrote to take the place of conversations that were too difficult to have in person. Booker’s lyrics combine with his signature guitar style to tell a story as only a New Orleans native can do.
Straight off the success of their debut album, “We Will Reign,” The Last Internationale has already shared the stage with big names including The Who and Robert Plant – as well as appeared on the famous Letterman stage. Guitarist Edgey Pires and Delila Paz blend grunge, hard rock and metal so well, festival goers may think it’s the early 90’s all over again.
Blending classic heavy blues with raw and intense rock n’ roll, Nashville’s Goodbye June is known for creating a sound and experience as heart-pounding as the fiery Pentecostal tent revivals of their upbringing. The band is currently working on their sophomore album after the success of their debut, “Nor The Wild Music Flow,” and will tour with ZZ Top this fall.
Rocker Scotty Bratcher began playing guitar at age two – a fact that surprises most people, until they listen to him. The influence of Stevie Ray Vaughan is apparent – not lost are the other influences of Southern rock heroes he’s toured with, including Ted Nugent, Joe Bonamassa and Tinsley Ellis, among many others.
“We see our festival as an opportunity to break the barriers of the average music festival, ” SoundHarvest Festival Director Monica Copciac said. “We are thrilled to announce the new additions to our lineup which embodies the eclectic nature of SoundHarvest and Nashville.”
