The band has akeded John Scofield, who will join the band during their festival closing performance, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Charlie Hunter Trio and soul singer Nigel Hall to join them for the festivities. More artists will be announced in the coming months. "Soulive has always wanted to host our own festival and bring together some of the artists who we've grown with over the years," says Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno.
