Winoca Fest in Wilmington features Gillian Welch, The Felice Brothers, and more

Gillian Welch will headline Winoca Fest in Wilmington, NC
on August 27, 2011
Tickets for Winoca Fest, the Wilmington, NC music festival put together by Winoca Records went on sale at noon today and their lineup is an excellent mesh of brilliant local talent and nationally touring acts as well.  Headlined by Gillian Welch and The Felice Brothers, Winoca Fest will be held on August 27, 2011 at Battleship Park in downtown Wilmington with tickets priced at $30 in advance and $35 day of.  Winoca Records is home to Bottom String favorites Onward, Soldiers who will also be playing at the festival.

Winoca Fest not only provides for an excellent outlet for local and nationally touring bands, but also to raise awareness about non-profits within the community.  As many as thirty groups will be at Winoca Fest to explain their projects and to promote their messages to the community.

Winoca Fest boasts a diverse lineup that taps into some of North Carolina's finest acts such as the Americana-Rock goodness of Onward, Soldiers, the always breath-taking folk duo of Mandolin Orange, one of the Triangle's finest indie-rock bands, Hammer No More The Fingers, and the Carolina powerhouses of The Old Ceremony.  Taking these excellent local artists and putting them on the same bill as Those Darlins, The Felice Brothers, and Gillian Welch will make for an incredible day full of music in downtown Wilmington.  It's not very often that you can look at a lineup and be thoroughly excited for every single band listed but Winoca Fest has just that.  With music starting at noon, look to Winoca Fest for a day full of awesome sights and sounds in the beautiful waterfront area of downtown Wilmington.
