Dark Star Orchestra confirms 8th annual Dark Star Jubilee

THORNVILLE, Ohio — This week, as Dark Star Orchestra (founded on Nov. 11, 1997 in Chicago) celebrates 21 years since the genesis of their continual musical community, the band announces the lineup for their eighth annual Dark Star Jubilee music festival. Held at Legend Valley Music Center in Thornville, Ohio, May 24-26, 2019 Dark Star Orchestra headlines each of Jubilee’s three nights, offering a full, two-set performance each night, and will welcome: Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Leftover Salmon, Billy Strings, Dumpstaphunk, Donna The Buffalo, The Lil Smokies, The Nth Power, The Mighty Pines and more to be announced.

With three nights of Dark Star Orchestra and more than a dozen artists performing more than 24 hours of music with no overlapping sets, the Jubilee takes place at the historic Legend Valley (formerly known as Buckeye Lake Music Center), home to some of the largest outdoor Grateful Dead concerts. For more than 21 years and 2,800 shows, Dark Star Orchestra has toured the world embodying the Grateful Dead’s live concert experience for veteran Deadheads and those too young to have ever seen a Grateful Dead show. Countless guest musicians have sat in with Dark Star Orchestra, including six members of the Grateful Dead, most recently when Grateful Dead founding member and bassist, Phil Lesh, joined the band onstage in San Francisco at the historic Fillmore Auditorium.

Dark Star Jubilee tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today with discounted “Early Bird” tickets for three-day general admission and for “Early Bird Good Lovin’ VIP” festival admission. “Little Star Kids” admission is available for children ages 4-12, who must be accompanied by a festival ticket-holding adult. Festival attendees ages 3 and under are free, while youth above age 13 must have a full-price festival pass.

Gates open at noon on Friday, May 24.
