High Water Festival 2018
The second annual High Water Festival is a two-day event featuring over 20 musical acts across two stages! Curated by Johns Island due Shovels and Rope, this music fest will take over Riverfront Park in North Charleston on April 21 and 22nd, 2018.
The festival is officially sold out, but if you’re lucky, there might still be a chance to snag a few tix by keeping tabs on their facebook event page, as people post about tickets they can’t use all the time.
Another option is the “Earned Ticket Program,” where you can earn a weekend pass by doing some good in the neighborhood by volunteering at one of the three non-profits of which some of the proceeds of this weekend go to. Check out the details here.
The diverse musical lineup is sure to make everyone happy with confirmed appearances by:
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
Band of Horses
Shovels & Rope
St. Paul and the Broken Bones
Tank and the Bangas
Shrimp Records Family Band
The Wild Reeds
T. Hardy Morris
There will be plenty to eat and drink with local craft beer, wine, and cocktails. For those of you who already have passes, you can “add-on” to your ticket by attending one of three special events:
Pass the Peas: Locally crafted libations, artfully prepared and hand-selected food, as well as wines paired from around the world
Low Tide Social: SOLD OUT
Daily Oyster Education Classes: Shuck and taste a dozen oysters from Seaborn Oyster Co.
If you’re not familiar with the bands, the High Water Festival even put together a Spotify playlist to get you ready for the two-day event. You can listen in here.
The purpose of the High Water Festival is to integrate music, food, and art, while also providing a positive, lasting impact on the greater Charleston community. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go towards The Green Heart Project, Charleston Waterkeeper, and Water Mission.
The event takes place at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park just a hop, skip and jump from Park Circle. Gates open at noon on both days.
