Organizers of annual outdoor festival Dominion Riverrock announced the full list of music acts performing at this year’s festival on Tuesday.

The three day festival, which runs May 19th through the 21st, features a variety of outdoor activities, races, a bouldering area, BMX course, slack line and “air dog” competitions, plus lots of live music–all of which is free and open to the public.

On Friday, May 19th, The SteelDrivers will take the stage at 8:30 PM. On Saturday, May 20th, Hard Working Americans will be the headliner, taking the stage at 8:00.

Touring in support of their most recent album “Rest In Chaos,” the follow up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut in 2014, Hard Working Americans offers a sound invoking the past, present, and future of rock’n’roll music. The group combines the talents of Todd Snider, Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools and Duane Trucks, Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s Neal Casal, Great American Taxi’s Chad Staehly, and Jesse Aycock to form a unique blues and southern rock sound and stage experience.

The SteelDrivers, winner of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album, are a group of seasoned and distinguished veterans who blend their bluegrass roots with country, soul, and other contemporary influences. The result is a hybrid sound described as “new music with old feeling” that was born in Nashville and has been embraced across the country.
