Lineup Announced for Fitzgerald's American Music Festival

Four days, three stages, 51 bands. Saddle up your party boots.

Summertime, cold beers and American music. Now we're talkin'. 

FitzGerald's has announced the artists for the 32nd Annual American Music Festival, and it's a lineup jam-packed with smartly curated roots, soul, folk, country, alt-country, polka, zydeco, bluegrass and blues acts. And so much more. Did we mention the Blue Ribbon Glee Club perorming a cappella punk rock? Or Tributosaurus performing as CCR

The festival will take place on three stages over the course of four days — Friday June 29 through Sunday July 1 and then ending with big July 3 throwdown. 

Tickets are $30 per day, with no advanced single-day tickets sold. Early birds can save $5 by showing up within the first hour of the doors opening. Four day passes are available for $100 at www.ticketweb.com. Bringing the kids? That's cool. Tickets for kids 12 and under are $5, but they can only stay until 9 p.m each night. Here's a look at the lineup:
