Southern Ground Music and Food Festival

While Charleston has a great local music scene, for years some have complained about larger bands skipping over Charleston citing the city not as convenient to pass through for tours. Well, this week, Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band changes that by bringing Southern Ground Music and Food Festival to Charleston on October 21-23 at Blackbaud Stadium on Daniel Island. Zac Brown Band will play each night of three-day festival as well as an array of music talent from My Morning Jacket and Warren Haynes Band to Train, Fitz and The Tantrums and Del McCoury to name only a few.

Billed as much a food festival as music, some of the experiences for foodies include Front Porch Stage Boxes that feature seating on-stage close to the performers with a four-course gourmet meal prepared by Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin and James Beard Award-winners Sean Brock (Executive Chef – Husk, McCrady’s, Charleston, SC), Mike Lata (Chef/Partner – FIG, Charleston, SC), and RJ Cooper (Owner/Executive Chef – Rogue 24, Washington, DC) as well as complimentary drinks including premium beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks. Having had the pleasure of attending a Zac Brown Eat & Greet where Chef Rusty prepared a feast pre-show in “Cookie”, the band’s mobile kitchen trailer, I know the food element of the weekend will be fantastic as well.
