For over twenty years Dave Mathews Band has touched the hearts of generations with their soft-rock bliss. DMB is well known for their extensive tours throughout the summer all over the nation and in Europe. However, this year they have altered their tour schedule and are hosting a “caravan” festival in four different locations in the United States.
The DMB Caravan kicked off at Atlantic City’s former airport, Bader Field. With an expected attendance of 75,000 fans the reaction to the festival has been nothing short of superb. The DMB Caravan lineup was highlighted with bands such as Lotus, Rebelution, and Bassnectar, to name a few. The Caravan’s stop in Atlantic City was only a taste of what’s to come this summer.
The next stop begins July 8 in Chicago. The theme screams diversity as Chicago’s lineup includes some of the same bands from Atlantic City but also adds its own unique touch with performances by Kid Cudi, The Wailers, and Soja. A full preview of the lineup in Chicago can be seen here.
The Chicago show will be followed up by a stop in New York City, August 26-28. There is a lot of buzz surrounding the New York caravan as it will be hosted on Governor’s Island and will also feature performances from O.A.R, Dispatch, and the Roots.
The DMB Caravan will conclude at the ever popular venue the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington, September 2-4. With performances by De La Soul, Blind Pilot, and The Moondoggies the end of the Caravan will be prove to be epic.
DMB has teamed up with Sportiqe to create a shirt dedicated to highlighting each location on the caravan. Look for big things this summer out of DMB and their Caravan! Rock on!
