The Knox Concert Series has presented music events in Anniston, Alabama, since 1946. It began, and continues to be, a totally volunteer-driven organization. The series originally featured four classical concerts a year, but it has continued to grow and diversify. In February, organizers announced their most ambitious undertaking yet - the Knox Outdoors Music Festival.
The Festival will be held in historic downtown Anniston on May 20th, with gates opening at 2PM. Attendees can take advantage of arts-and-crafts vendors, food trucks, the Knox Kids Zone, and other great activities. The Festival will also be a music-lover’s paradise. Eight bands will take to two stages, and the diverse line-up is sure to offer something to please everyone’s pallet. The Festival will host bands such as The Dexateens, The Seratones, Bright Light Social Hour, and the renowned St. Paul and the Broken Bones will headline the event.
St. Paul & The Broken Bones has a reputation as a must-see live act. They are currently touring in support of their second full-length album, Sea of Noise. It’s a heart-pounding infusion of R&B, cosmic soul, funk, and psychedelic rock & roll. This stop in Anniston is part of St. Paul’s North American Tour before the band leaves for Europe later this summer. The guys are no strangers to music festivals, having performed at Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and others. The chance to see them perform in such a unique setting will be truly special.
The Knox Outdoors Music Festival is sure to become a significant part of the Knox Concert Series’ rich history.
Tickets available here, $35 advance, $45 at the gate. VIP tickets avaialbale for $125, and includes complimentary hors d'oeuvres, beer, & wine, private restrooms, festival koozie, and private viewing area next to stage.
