Dark Star Orchestra Tap Oteil & Friends, Galactic, Jorma Kaukonen and More for 2020 Dark Star Jubilee
Dark Star Orchestra will headline their Dark Star Jubilee this summer, leading the charge with six sets from the Grateful Dead songbook.
Additional, recently-announced acts for the May 22-24 event include Oteil & Friends, Galactic (feat. Anjelika Jelly Joseph), Zero (feat. Steve Kimock, Gregg Anton, Pete Sears and Melvin Seals), The Infamous Stringdusters, Jorma Kaukonen, Keller Williams, Marco Benevento, Jeff Mattson & Friends and Holly Bowling.
Taking place in Thornville, Ohio, Dark Star Jubilee acts as a freewheeling celebration of the Grateful Dead scene as well as a family reunion of sorts.
“We don’t have ATM machines, we don’t sell warm beer for $8.00. It’s a BYOB festival and you can walk right up to the stage with your cooler and a chair and have a good time,” DSO guitarist Rob Eaton told Relix in 2018, describing the event. “We have a big family section. We have kid parades and drum circles, and we try to make it as family-friendly as we can.”
