KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — The 20th Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival will go on.

More than 100 artists will play Sept. 10-12 on 16 stages across downtown Bristol along the Tennessee-Virginia state line.

Festival organizers released the full list of acts Wednesday.

Among the late additions are Philadelphia indie-rock stalwart Dr. Dog.

They will join Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Tanya Tucker, Blackberry Smoke, Yola, The SteelDrivers, Rhonda Vincent, and Hayes Carll as the headlining acts. 

The popular country music festival highlighting the genre’s formation is produced by the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.

“We worked hard to keep our lineup as consistent as we could with the lineup we had hoped to have at last year’s cancelled event, but the pandemic forced us to make some difficult decisions,” BCM Executive Director Leah Ross said. BCM is the parent nonprofit organization of Bristol Rhythm, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum and Radio Bristol.

Weekend passes are on sale now for $100 plus tax and fees. Payment plans are available. For more information visit BristolRhythm.com.
