Author: Josh | Category: News | Tags: , , ,

Wakarusa is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Grateful Dead with a special series of Late Night & Early Morning performances inspired by the music of the band that started it all! The series of Dead Tributes will include late night performances by Kansas City’s Play Dead on Thursday night, Forgotten Space from Dallas, TX on Friday night and a huge from Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Finally, ease into your final day of Wakarusa with the Play Dead Gospel Revival* on Sunday morning at the Backwoods Stage! Web-Banner_Honoring-GD_1200x630 (1)

*We’d like to clarify any confusion that may have arisen with the original announcement that a band called ‘Grateful Gospel’ would be playing Wakarusa.  We want to be clear that Keller Williams’ Grateful Gospel is NOT playing Wakarusa this year.  The band “Play Dead” will, however, be performing a special Grateful Dead themed gospel set on Sunday morning entitled “The Play Dead Gospel Revival.”
