[PREVIEW + SET TIMES] ART OF LIVE FESTIVAL 2018
January 18, 2018
We’re grateful to be a part of Art of Live Festival again this year! AOL is a three-night, multi-genre, multi-venue concert series in St. Louis that begins tonight, January 18th.
Here’s what you need to know:
— A wristband (still available here) will get you into all the shows, including fest headliner/country music luminary Lee Ann Womack at Old Rock House on Friday, for a price of $38.75 online including fees. A single ticket for the Womack show will cost you $30.
— There are tickets left for the individual shows, too, but I’m not sure how many, so buying in advance for Friday or Saturday night is highly recommended. You can find links to individual tickets sales through Do314‘s special Art of Live page: http://artoflivefestival.do314.com/.
— The 2018 Art of Live Festival lineup is refreshingly diverse in sound and artist demographics. Fests are tough to book (respect to all who do it), so this lineup, especially in the dead of winter, is quite an achievement. Expect to enjoy indie rock, electronic pop, country, Americana, folk, and hip hop from local and national artists.
— The aforementioned fest headliner, Lee Ann Womack, has a special VIP add-on option for her tour that includes a signed record, a meet and greet, and more. This is a separate charge in addition to a ticket. The VIP option can be purchased here.
— Finally, the AOL organizers love you and want you to be able to see as much music as possible over the course of the fest. Therefore, they’ve shared this handy set list guide with date, time, and venue information for each evening:
