**Please read below for important links to keep you updated on the lineup and dates**

Jan 25, 2009 - It really bugs me that the promoters have not made an announcement yet. These guys are on to something big and they are playing with it like people can just stop what they are doing at the drop of a hat, schedule vacation time, make travel plans etc and rush right on over to the fest. Even though the ABB are the roots of this fest, they aren't my only reason for going and I would still go even if they were not there. It looks like there may have been some poor planning this year. Don't get me wrong – the ABB are the big name with good reason and are one of my top 2 bands. We don't have much in the South along the lines of this kind of fest and it really could evolve into something supernatural if given the chance. Hopefully the event coordinator that took it over last year understands that.

The ABB have a poll on their site for people to vote. Hop on over here and cast your vote for Wanee.

UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE - January 28th - the Waneefest site is back up and showing signs of life. Show your support everyone and get your tickets when they become available. We can not let this event die.

Tracking the Jambase thread in gimp's post below got me over to http://consequenceofsound.net/festival-outlook/wanee-music-festival/ and they have rumored that the Grateful Dead may be there. It is looking more and more like June 5-6. Hopefully http://www.dead.net/dead09 will be posting a Wanee date soon. What more could you ask for than the ABB and the Dead at such a great fest.

last.fm has the date as June 5th here http://www.last.fm/event/942758

D - here are some other concerned people about the fest.

Seems many people are wondering what's going on. I'm with you - the Allmans are a big part of this but it has the potential to really grow if they know how to do it.
