The Soul'd Out Music Festival Announces 2012 Lineup

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Feb 29, 2012 at 2:15 PM


The Soul'd Out Music Festival returns April 12 to 25, and they've just announced the lineup for this year, its third since the festival's inception in 2009. As its name would indicate, Soul'd Out celebrates soul music but, more importantly, "soulful" music, which also embraces blues, dance, jazz, reggae, and other things off the well-beaten rock and pop path. This year's festival is its most wide-ranging to date, including performances from rockabilly superstar Wanda Jackson, bluegrass purveyors Greensky Bluegrass and Pert Near Sandstone, and classic R&B/quiet storm band Maze. There's also shows from electronic acts Justice (already sold out) and SBTRKT; Dr. Lonnie Smith makes a welcome return; and Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding returns to her hometown on the heels of her performance at this year's Oscars.

The Soul'd Out Music Festival operates a little differently from other fests, with shows spread out over the course of two weeks, allowing avid festival-goers the chance to catch nearly every show—as opposed to other fests which book shows simultaneously, forcing you to pick between competing shows. Check out the full schedule after the jump. Also, definitely click the jump to see the classic breakin' video for "Back in Stride" by Maze, who'll be performing with original singer Frankie Beverly. (Watch it! It's the best video of all time. Maze did that conveyor belt long before Jamijijwah! Or whatever they were called.)
