It’s one thing to have the biggest stars play a festival, but it’s another thing entirely when one of the world’s most likable stars becomes a partner in a festival. Justin Timberlake is a Memphis, Tenn., native but he also owns a huge ranch in Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. just a few miles down the road from Franklin. Timberlake came on board last year, just before the event, but did not perform in the 2016 line-up. This year though, he’ll anchor the massive festival that was already doing well before his involvement and will seemingly continue on that path even more so now that he’s a partner.
Lineup: Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Ryan Adams, The Avett Brothers, Mavis Staples, Gary Clark Jr., Walk The Moon, Fitz and the Tantrums, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Revivalists, Better Than Ezra, Shovels & Rope, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, Jerry Douglas Band, Valerie June, Langhorne Slim, Nikki Lane, Joseph, Pokey LaFarge and more
Distance from Denver: 1,176 miles
