Neil Young and Crazy Horse will return stateside from their European tour to headline a new festival in Virginia this fall. Young will lead the Interlocken Festival, a four-day event that will take place September 5th through 8th at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, Virginia. Furthur, Zac Brown, the String Cheese Incident and the Black Crowes are also set to play Interlocken, and more artists will be announced soon.

How Crazy Horse Jump-Started Neil Young's Career

Tickets will go on sale May 23rd at 10 a.m. EST on Interlocken's website. Neil Young and Crazy Horse wrapped an Australian tour in March and will kick off their European leg on June 2nd in Berlin, Germany. They'll tour Europe through August, finishing in London on August 19th.

Futhur's addition to the lineup comes as good news from Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and company – the band was forced to pull out of the BottleRock Napa Valley festival earlier this month after Weir fell to the ground and was unable to finish a show in late April.
