Genres Unite As Phil Lesh & Friends, Khruangbin, Goose, War on Drugs, Animal Collective, Black Pumas, Umphrey’s McGee & More Lead Inaugural Sacred Rose Festival

There’s a great reason to come and join the party in Chicago this summer.

Sacred Rose, a new festival taking place August 26-28 at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, IL, announced its lineup, and Phil Lesh and Friends tops a bill filled with notable indie artists and jam bands alike.

The festival includes indie powerhouses Black Pumas, Khruangbin, Kamasi Washington, War on Drugs, Animal Collective, and Margo Price – she recently sat in a handful of times with Bob Weir and Wolf Bros.). 

And from the Jamband circuit, Chicago-based Umphrey’s McGee, Goose, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, the Disco Biscuits, STS9, Greensky Bluegrass, and Lettuce are on the bill.

Cory Wong, The Wood Brothers, Punch Brothers, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Dawes, Hiatus Kaiyote, City and Colour, Yves Tumor, Moon Taxi, Lotus, and the Infamous Stringdusters featuring Molly Tuttle will round out the featured acts at Sacred Rose.

Scared Rose will feature more than 40 acts that come from several musical genres, and the cross-pollination of jam bands and indie artists marks a true first for U.S. music festivals.

Rolling Stone reports Scared Rose Founder Michael Berg issued a statement that says, “In 2018 when we shifted North Coast (Music Festival) from a multi-genre festival to a fully electronic music event, we started dreaming up Scared Rose and what it could mean for fans of Americana, psych-rock, jam, indie, soul, funk, and bluegrass. Scared Rose is the first festival of its kind in our area, and we’re so proud to deliver a special experience for our fans who have been patiently waiting for a lineup like this for a long time.”

The North Coast Music Festival first took place in Chicago on Labor Day weekend in 2010.
