Moon River Music Festival will make its return to Chattanooga, Tennessee, on September 12th and 13th with a diverse lineup that spans rock, folk, bluegrass, and gospel. Sheryl Crow and Nickel Creek will headline the two-day event, which will be held once again at Coolidge Park.
Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, who present and curate Moon River, will also perform as part of the lineup. Additional artists include Ben Rector, Billy Strings, Indigo Girls, Dawes, Robert Earl Keen, Shovels and Rope, Yola, the Jayhawks, Coin, Colony House, Molly Tuttle, Amythyst Kiah, Rebirth Brass Band, the National Parks, Natalie Hemby, the McCrary Sisters, Che Apalache, Strung Like a Horse, and Jill Andrews.
Kicking off the weekend of Moon River will be a live taping of NPR’s Live From Here With Chris Thile, which takes the place of an in-the-round songwriter event of previous years. Tickets for the NPR show go on sale to the public beginning February 21st, and the on-sale for remaining VIP and general weekend passes — following last week’s presale — takes place February 13th at 10 a.m. ET.
Now in its sixth year, Moon River Music Festival has called Chattanooga home since 2018, after moving from its original home at Memphis’ Levitt Shell. Nonprofit partners and beneficiaries include Friends of Outdoor Chattanooga and St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
