About Laid Back Festival:
Named after Gregg Allman’s classic 1973 solo debut album, Laid Back Festival was first held in 2015 at Wantagh, NY’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and followed in 2016 and 2017 by an expanded multi-city itinerary. Over its three seasons, the festival showcased an extraordinary roster of true music icons, including Allman, Jason Isbell, The Doobie Brothers, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, Bruce Hornsby, America, The Marshall Tucker Band, Peter Wolf, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, and many more. Laid Back quickly proved an indisputable success, with New Jersey’s Asbury Park Press declaring it “a crowd-pleasing blend of classic rock along with food and spirits.” For more information, please visit www.laidbackfestival.com.
