New Music Fest, 'Heart of Town' Coming To Knoxville In April

Always room for one more music festival in Knoxville, right? Popular Grateful Dead tribute band Shakedown Six has curated a lineup of some of the funkiest, grooviest, jammiest bands around the region for a day-fest coming up in April.

Sponsored by Blühen Botanicals, The Heart of Town Festival will feature Shakedown Six playing the music of The Dead as well as Knoxville funk-rock favorites Grandpa’s Stash and Milkshake Fatty, indie hip-hop crew The Palmer Squares, and Nashville funk / soul band The Aquaducks. (Check out a few videos below.)

The one day event will take place at Riot Printing. The festival site is conveniently in a big covered lot right next to Riot’s building at 1321 Chilhowee Avenue 37917.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am, and a very limited number of tickets will be at a special early bird price of $10. Advance tickets are $15, and Day of Show tickets are $20.
