2017 Go Fest Music Lineup Is Huge

The Marcus King Band is headlining with a free show on Oct. 14, but that’s not the only opportunity to hear great live music at the Anthem GO Outside Festival.

The festival will feature 16 other bands, and a silent disco at the outdoors festival Oct. 13-15 at River’s Edge. Music will take place on two stages – the Haley Toyota Music Stage and an acoustic stage brought to you by The Musicians of Roanoke.

At 21 years old, Marcus King’s dazzling musical ability is evident throughout the phenom’s second full-length LP dubbed “The Marcus King Band.” Marcus King recently appeared on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, featured as one of the “10 Young Players Spreading the Gospel of Kick-Ass Guitar.” Operating within the fiery brand of American roots music that King calls, “soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock,” King’s gorgeous, rough-hewn vocals, soaring guitar work and heartfelt songwriting shine amidst a group of masterful musicians who are becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts.
