“We realized so much about find out how to talk,” Wood mentioned. “We’ve actually damaged it down into what we did proper and what we will do higher.”

Additional performers this yr embrace Leon Bridges, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Head & The Heart, Live, Jenny Lewis, Lauren Daigle, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real.

The pageant manufacturers itself as household pleasant, with children underneath 10 allowed in free with an grownup common admission ticket holder and music ending at eight:30 p.m. Central.

Tickets go on sale Friday.
