Saturday: SoulStock '05 in Alabama
Tue., May. 3. 2005 11:05am EDT
This Saturday, we'll be making our first appearance at SoulStock, an annual rock festival held in Athens AL. Founded in 1999, the festival has grown in attendance from 3500 in its first year to 14,000 last year.
Athens is conveniently located 37 minutes from Huntsville, 24 minutes from Decatur, 1:06 from Florence, 1:36 from Birmingham and 1:40 from Nashville. ApologetiX Superfan of the South, Wanda Rose Bush, informs us there is a zero-percent chance of rain for Saturday!
The festival's first main-stage act was Third Day. Two years ago, the main-stage act was Rebecca St. James. Last year, the main-stage act was Audio Adrenaline. This year, the festival has changed its format to feature five acts on the main stage:
Big Daddy Weave
Jeff Deyo (original lead singer for Sonic Flood)
The festival starts at 1 p.m., and we're scheduled to play at 4:15 p.m. Please make sure to allow yourself enough time to get a good spot.
