Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival to announce 2017 lineup May 4

The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) will present “The Big Lineup Reveal” for the 17th annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival set for Sept. 15-17, 2017, at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, at an invitation-only event. The festival is held at a variety of venues in downtown Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia.

According to organizers, winners of the festival’s SuperFan contest and invited guests will be the first to see the Bristol Rhythm’s artist reveal video — an introduction to festival headliners in addition to the full lineup announcement. This year’s festival poster artist and artwork will also be unveiled at the event and guests will be given the first opportunity to purchase the poster and limited edition T-shirts.

Fans can follow the action on or on the festival’s Facebook page. Weekend wristbands are on sale now.
