WayHome Reveals Second Phase of Lineup
Last month when we spoke to Republic Live's executive director Shannon McNevan, he assured us that the festival had some names they were yet to announce, including something huge:
There’s definitely still some big acts we haven’t announced! It should all play out in the next week or so. We already have some great acts locked up for the next announcement and it definitely won’t be just a bunch of baby bands or emerging artists.
Today, Shannon's insight was indeed proven correct, when the festival took to social media to reveal a new set of artists set to play the festival:
Highlights of the list include Neil Young, who will be uniquely backed by Promise of The Real, a band headed by Lukas Nelson, son to Country music legend Willie. Aside from tour dates, Young has also announced an album with the band titled The Monsanto Years. WayHome will also mark the final date of the band's upcoming 12-date tour, notably the only Canadian date featured throughout the tour.
Other notable names include Theophilus London (who's most recent album was executive produced by Kanye West), Atlanta-based Indie rockers Manchester Orchestra and Class Historian performers Broncho, who recently opened for Billy Idol on the North American leg of his tour.
Tickets for WayHome Festival (which is now less than 100 days away) are available for purchase here. Check out the festival's full lineup below:
