I'll be on the bridge watching and drinking for free
Is Riverbend still big in the summer? Looks like it's a 4-day event now. https://riverbendfestival.com/lineup/
It is still a huge gathering of rednecks and adolescents but supposedly overall attendance has been down. First I've heard of shortening it
Riverbend has struggled the past couple of years hence the shortening. Not sure why so many people hate it. I have seen a lot of great shows there and if there is nothing i like i just dont go. Also helps I have not paid to get in ever. Weezer is playing one of the nights.
I see Keith Urban is scheduled. Used to be a 7-9 day event.
weezer would be awesome, where do you see this?
Hasn't been announced yet. They talked to Widespread Panic but they declined.
Panic played a few years ago. Was fun other than the rain.
Never paid once as a kid after helping Knights of Columbus with tickets.
Looking forward to the inevitable REO Speedwagon headliner announcement soon.
They shortened it to 4 days because 9 wasn’t just unfeasable. The acts were usually 2nd rate or has beens because they didn’t have the funding to grab big names.
Everyone is all about Moon River now anyway.
Yep. Was awesome.
Interesting. Riverbend used to occupy approx the same place on the calendar that Moon River does now. Used to be around the beginning of the school year. Maybe late August?
I've never been, but I thought it was in June. I think I remember saying, "The state is rolling in tax dollars with CMA, Bonnaroo, and Riverbend going on this week."
I honestly don't hate the changes. I'm hoping the increased ticket prices mean better acts, fewer rednecks, and fewer kids roaming around and taking up space. The Strut should also be improved being moved to October and being put on by the Bessie Smith Center, who has already said they want to do it bigger than it has been.
Also, if Dixie Fuller is still working with Friends of the Festival next year, I'm saying Phish will be one of the headliners.
It has been in June for quite a while now. It was in late summer when it first started in the 80s and I think into the 90s?
It’s in June but is moving to May because it was losing in competition to Bonnaroo which historically has occurred at the same time.
