Venue: Firefly Distillery


A 2022 Grammy nominee for Best New Artist and the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest winner, Tank and the Bangas is widely considered one of the most exciting, sonically diverse bands to crash the music scene in years. A perfect ensemble to close the Festival with a bang, their sound sits at the crossroads of jazz, hip hop, soul, and rock—with funk serving as the conduit.

For the event: Pack a picnic, gather your blankets, and head to Firefly Distillery grounds in North Charleston. Adult beverages will be sold on site; no outside alcohol will be permitted. The gates open at 5:00pm, with performances beginning at 6:30pm. A fireworks display caps off the evening.

Please note that any bag may be subject to search upon entry.
