Celebrating its 35th year, Fall for Greenville announced their 2016 lineup filled with an array of artists, from the soulful country of Anderson East to the gritty alt rock of Cloud Nothings. Again this year, the three-day festival kicks off on Thursday night with the popular Oklahoma roots band Turnpike Troubadours. Mixed in with strong headlining names like Shooter Jennings and the aforementioned bands are loads of bands who call the Upstate home as FFG stays tied strong to the community.
For people coming from out-of-town, there’s really no better weekend to visit Greenville. The always bustling downtown comes to life even more as Main Street closes off and many of the restaurants serve travel size portions of their signature dishes. It’s also that perfect time of year when the leaves start to change and the cool air starts to blow in. Traditionally the days have been warm and sunny, with the nights and evenings approaching sweater weather. For locals, it’s a chance to experience all Greenville has to offer, and maybe try a new restaurant or two.
Leading up to Fall for Greenville we’ll be previewing more of the local and headlining artists along with live sessions featuring more of the local acts. For now, get to know more of the acts playing by tuning into our Spotify playlist.
