Lockn' Festival 2014 | Day 2 in Virginia

From the beginnings of the large scale festival, dating back to gargantuan events such as the 1969 Woodstock Music & Arts Festival or the Watkins Glen Summer Jam of 1973, it was apparent that hosting tens of thousands and creating a safe environment with proper amenities and resources was a challenge that needed some trial and error to perfect. Over the years music and the way we listen to it has come a long way. And so have the festival concepts that we enjoy contemporary.

Introducing Spring 1990 (The Other One)

Some consider Spring 1990 the last great Grateful Dead tour. That it may be. In spite of outside difficulties and downsides, nothing could deter the Grateful Dead from crafting lightness from darkness.

On Highway 61: Music, Race, and the Evolution of Cultural Freedom

Dennis McNally knows a thing or two about cultural history. As the biographer for both the Grateful Dead and Jack Kerouac, this bestselling author lives, breathes, and fully engages with his passion. This is why I think his forthcoming book, On Highway 61: Music, Race, and the Evolution of Cultural Freedom (on sale: October 14, 2014) will become a treasured book for music historians, critics, and most importantly, music fans.
