Now in its 9th year, Waynestock celebrates Knoxville’s homegrown talent with a yearly two or three-day showcase.

Waynestock: For the Love of Drew, Knoxville’s premier celebration of local music, will return on Feb. 1-2, 2019, at the Relix Theatre. Waynestock was begun in early 2011 by music communty friends of longtime Knoxville music writer Wayne Bledsoe when his oldest son, Andrew died suddenly on Dec. 10, 2017. Knoxville music favorites staged a three-day event to honor the family, raise funds for funeral expenses and simply support their family in their time of grief. The festival returned the following year to support the family of musician Phil Pollard, who died in late 2011, and has since become an annual event that both raises money for local charities and celebrates the Knoxville music scene.
