With Neil Young and Crazy Horse having canceled their appearance at next month's inaugural Lockn' music festival in Nelson County, event organizers say refunds are available.
Young and Crazy Horse said earlier this week they canceled their North American tour due to guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro's broken hand.
Concertgoers seeking a refund should contact the ticket provider, Musictoday, via email at email@example.com or by phone at 800-594-8499 by Friday and send their tickets back to the company no later than Aug. 31.
Organizers stressed that refunds would not be given until returned tickets were received by Musictoday.
Organizers also announced the Trey Anastasio Band, Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, Indecision and the Jeff Sipe Trio had been added to the lineup of the four-day event at the 5,000-acre Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington.
"First and foremost, my best wishes to Frank 'Poncho' Sampedro and his speedy recovery," said Trey Anastasio, who's best known as the guitarist for the popular live band Phish, in a statement. "As huge Crazy Horse fans, TAB will do our best to bring their spirit to Lockn'. We are honored to be a part of such a great lineup for a first year festival."
The lineup also includes Furthur, featuring former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh; Zac Brown; jam-band specialists Widespread Panic and The String Cheese Incident; southern rock group the Black Crowes; and powerhouse vocalist Grace Potter and her band the Nocturnals, to name a few.
Lockn' is the newest and likely the largest musical gathering to hit Central Virginia, which is expected to draw upwards of 40,000 people to the area Sept. 5 to 8.
