Those who have wished for a high-profile music fest right here in Charleston are about to get their wish granted next spring.
High Water Festival is debuting this April at Riverfront Park in North Charleston. Billed as "a celebration of music, food, and libations", High Water is sure to become a destination for music fans from the Lowcountry and beyond.
Initiated by Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent of popular local band Shovels & Rope, High Water is meant to be an extravaganza featuring the best indie, soul, rock, and folk music they could muster.
Hearst and Trent got very lucky with High Water's lineup. With help from The Avett Brothers, The Shins, Sovels & Rope, Deer Tick, Dawes, and more across two stages, High Water seems like it will be an unforgettable weekend.
And that's not even considering the chef-curated dining experience on tap benefitting local nature based non-profits The Green Haart Project, Charleston Waterkeeper, and Water Mission.
Tickets will be going on sale THIS FRIDAY at 10:00am, but for now, you'll have the chance to win two VIP Weekend Passes with hotel accomodations.
Early bird tickets will be $99.50 until they're gone, when the ticket price jumps to $119.50.
A VIP experience including priority entrance and parking, a premium viewing area, a hangout space with food and drink, and more will cost you $274.50.
