"I typically catch 20-25 artists perform at each Big Ears Festival. With that metric in mind, this is a mix of the 20-25 artists I hope to catch in 2020. Note: this list will likely change as more artists are announced."
"Speaking of Big Ears 2020, you can expect our second line up announcement within the next week or two, with another two dozen excellent additions to our line up along, plus news about a few special performances. Stay tuned!"

I'm probably most excited for AWVFTS and Josephine Foster.
I saw Patti last month and it was incredible. Hoping for another great performance this go round. Also finally glad to see Ken Vandermark playing BE. I used to see the Vandermark 5 a lot in Chicago and they consistently blew me away. Since then, I've only seen him once (KV/Tim Flowers duo) and need more in my life.
