In its third year, Charleston’s High Water Fest comes back bigger and better than ever with an all-star lineup of indie folk favorites. The two day fest takes place in North Charleston’s scenic Riverfront Park on the weekend of April 13th and 14th.
The festival includes crowd pleasing favorites in the headliner spot, including the curators of the festival, Charleston-based folk duo Shovels & Rope. Hot R&B artist Leon Bridges fills one of the headlining spots, coming off his recent record Good Thing. Folk heavyweights The Head & The Heart fill out the last headlining spot with their indie-folk sounds, sure to please die hard fans and casual listeners alike.
In addition to a solid lineup of headliners, well-known folk icons line the undercard lineup. Famed midwesterner folk group Lord Huron, 60’s infused indie band Dr. Dog, rising indie-rocker Mitski (hot off her recent sold-out North America tour) and Mathew Houck’s Phosphorescent are notable highlights from a high quality undercard lineup.
The festival also includes a number of quintessentially southern experiences to augment the stellar music lineup. Recharge with some old fashioned southern libations and regionally-themed eats at the The Refuge retreat. Learn all things shellfish at oyster education classes. Enjoy a low-country boil, southern deserts and a bucolic environment at the low tide social on Friday April 12th.
Weekend passes start at $159.50 + fees. Experience passes can be purchased for $55 + fees. Both can be found at the High Water ticketing page here.
