The Shindig is celebrating year number 6 in 2017 and the little-Americana-festival-that-could is bringing back crowd-favorite previous Shindig acts. The Shindig is held the first Saturday in November in downtown Clayton, NC. This year it will be on Saturday, November 4th from Noon to 10PM. The goal is to highlight both amazing Americana bands and local craft beer.
This year’s line-up includes The Black Lillies, Yarn, and Forlorn Strangers.
Shindig continues to be the holy grail of music festivals, managing to book high-caliber bands but maintain an intimate feeling. Part of that is due to the format of the festival; Shindig is a one-day event.
The best part is that general admission to Shindig this year is FREE! There is also a VIP ticket for just $40. Ticket sales from the VIP experience will go to charity and the VIP tent will include a raised platform for better band viewing, access to the bands, unlimited sampling of beer vendors, and a full bar with food provided by local businesses Revival 1869 and SoDoSoPa.
Gates open in Downtown Clayton at Noon on the 4th for Shindig and close at 10PM. Up to six craft breweries, food trucks, and local vendors will also be on-site. Clayton is located just minutes from Downtown Raleigh and convenient to I-95 and I-40. Make a weekend out of your Shindig experience and discover all the amazing things Downtown Clayton has to offer.
