The festival will be held on the upper intramural fields, located behind the north stands of Memorial Stadium. Gates will open at 4 p.m. Friday, at 6 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday.

'Festival-goers should expect the full Zac Brown Band experience throughout the weekend,' said Saine.

Two-time Grammy winners and 2010 Country Music Association-nominated "Entertainer of the Year," the band will put its authentic Southern stamp on every facet of the festival, from the food to the eclectic musical lineup. The concert will showcase a brand new state-of-the-art mobile stage designed for the tour featuring skyboxes, video and a light show.

Each night will feature performances by several artists signed to Brown's label, Southern Ground Artists Inc., including Sonia Leigh, Levi Lowrey, Nic Cowan, The Wood Brothers, The Wheeler Boys and Blackberry Smoke.

Concessions at the festival will offer Southern-cuisine specialties created by Brown himself, along with the band's trusted chef Rusty Hamlin, including items prepared with Brown's famous Southern Ground Grub GA Clay Spice Rub and his own Brown Sauce."
