Wanee Festival Announces 2011 Lineup: Allman Brothers, Robert Plant, Ween, and 40 Others

You will spend almost every day of your life in a monkey suit, tracking the mysterious movements of the market, haunting the office, and hoarding overtime hours. But for the weekend of Thursday, April 14 through Saturday, April 16, unleash your inner neo-hippie and say, "Screw the man and his fucking straightjacket!"

Go gas up the VW bus, drop some acid, forget to shower for four days, and pop your favorite bluesy cosmic free folk psych-fuzz soul jam band mixtape into the 8-track player while burning rubber up I-75 to the cozy little enclave of Live Oak, Florida for this year's Wanee Festival.

Tickets go on sale today. See the cut for the fest's full 43-band lineup.
