Hot on the heels of their latest album announcement 'The Waterfall', My Morning Jacket return to their hometown for a jam down by Waterfront Park this summer, alongside British superstar Sam Smith who is looking at his most successful year yet with four Grammy wins, a sell-out tour and a number one already with his re-released debut single 'Lay Me Down' featuring John Legend.

Georgia rockers Widespread Panic are high on the bill, as well as Modest Mouse who recently unveiled their sixth studio album 'Strangers to Ourselves'. Further additions to the rock fest include another Kentucky favourite Cage The Elephant, Swedish singer/songwriters Tallest Man On Earth and First Aid Kit, California quartet Cold War Kids, New Jersey's The Gaslight Anthem and New York alternative-pop band San Fermin who are set to release their second album this year.
