Dark Star Orchestra is holding their seventh annual Dark Star Jubilee festival this coming Memorial Day May 25-27 at the venue which is now known as Legend Valley, in Thornville, Ohio. Back in 1993, it was known as Buckeye Lake Music Center, and on June 11, the Grateful Dead rolled into town. Nearly 25 years to the date, and at the same location, Dark Star Orchestra will be recreating the original band’s historic set during one of the night at The Jubilee in a rare, advanced announcement for the band to confirm a show they’re playing. Along with the announcement of the 1993 show, The Jubilee announced today the event performance schedule as well.

The lineup includes three full, two-set Dark Star Orchestra shows, Los Lobos, Hot Tuna (2 sets: acoustic & electric), The Infamous Stringdusters, Melvin Seals & DSO performing a JGB set, The Nth Power, California Kind, Rumpke Mountain Boys, Jeff Mattson & Friends, The Lil Smokies, Holly Bowling, Dino English Quintet, Mystic Bowie’s Talking Dreads, & Kitchen Dwellers.
