Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will be playing at Nitefall On The River on June 5th. They have spent the past few years constantly touring the world while winning over audiences at festivals like Coachella, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Leeds, Austin City Limits and more. Their follow up album Here (2012) features “Man On Fire” and “That’s What’s Up” and hit No.5 on the Billboard 200 chart, and peaked atop Billboard’s Independent and Folk album charts.

Everyone’s favorite Grateful Dead tribute band Dark Star Orchestra is also coming to the Simon Estes stage this summer, on July 3rd. Dark Star Orchestra performs Grateful Dead classics in the same way that an orchestra interprets music of classical composers. The composer spirit is derived and channeled as the players capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances and compositions. Touring nationwide for twelve years to the tune of nearly 2000 shows since forming, the band’s determined commitment to “raising the Dead” has drawn national media attention.
