420 Fest at Centennial Olympic Park adds to 2020 lineup

Dec. 12, 2019


The Grammy Award-winning rock act Cage the Elephant has joined Sweetwater 420 Fest at Centennial Olympic Park as 2020 headliners while Gary Clark, Jr. was dropped from the lineup due to scheduling conflicts.

Cage the Elephant is just one of several performing acts announced today bolstering the festival’s previously-revealed lineup that includes Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, who will perform with his namesake solo band as well as fellow headlining supergroup Oysterhead (with Police drummer Stewart Copeland and Primus bassist/vocalist Les Claypool), Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lake Street Dive, The Floozies, Dr. Dog, The Marcus King Band, Larkin Poe, Delta Rae and Funk You.

The three-day festival returns to the Park on April 24-26, featuring three stages of live entertainment spanning genres from jam rock to Americana to reggae, EDM, and alt-rock, as well as stand-up comedians.

“420 Fest will continue its eco-friendly focus with waste diversion, compost creation, Planet 420 environmental village, charitable donations and recyclable cups. In total 420 Fest has diverted more than 240,000 pounds from landfills by recycling and created 60,000 pounds of compost. Charity auction 4:19 Got A Minute to Give has raised nearly $50,000 in two years,” according to today’s press release.

Notable acts also added to the bill today include The Revivalists (“Wish I Knew You” and “All My Friends”) and legendary reggae outfit Toots & the Maytals. The lineup also includes Futurebirds, Lettuce, Tank and The Bangas, Twiddle, Collie Buddz, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Doom Flamingo, Marco Benevento, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Andy Frasco & The UN, Ruby Belle & The Soulphonics, Aqueous, Liz Cooper & The Stampede, Iya Terra, Illiterate Light, Jessy Wilson, Ayla Nereo, Neal Francis, AFTM, Juice, Pip The Pansy, The Ries Brothers, The North 41, Migrant Worker, KrisB’s Midnight Railroad, Schema, Kendall Street Company and Three Star Revival.

More acts will be announced in January.

Cage the Elephant, which has scored a string of modern rock hits such as “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” and “Come a Little Closer,” is no stranger to the Park, having performed at the 420 Fest in 2015, and also the 2017 Shaky Knees Festival.

It’s also not the first 420 Fest for Anastasio (pictured above), who performed two sets at the 2017 festival. Claypool has 420 Fest experience, too, performing this year with The Lennon Claypool Delerium and with Primus in 2015.
