The Allman Borthers Band’s now annual music celebration, the Wanee Music Festival, will return to Live Oak, Florida this April 16th and 17th for its sixth go-around. And if the recently announced 2010 bill is any indication, the two-day event is quickly becoming, as one CoS reader put it, a hippie’s paradise.

After all, both the Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic will headline this year’s festivities with two performances each. What’s more, acts like Gov’t Mule, The Black Keys, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, The Wailers, and Stephen Stills are all also confirmed participants.

The Dead’s Bob Weir will also be making an appearance, this time as part of a collaboration called Bob Weir, Rob Wasserman & Jay Lane are Scaring The Children, as will Bill Kreutzmann, who will be teaming up with Papa Mali. Finally, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will appear to perform the music of Sly & the Family Stone. Yep, hippie’s paradise.

Two-day passes and VIP ticket packages will be available starting Friday, January 22nd via the festival’s website.
