The fifth Mile 0 Fest (initial) lineup is out and January can’t get here fast enough.
Five years ago Mile 0 Fest arrived on the red dirt and Americana scene down in Key West, Florida. A logistical hurdle just to secure artists and patrons at the southernmost point of America, the very first lineup was far too impressive for many to ignore. Every year since, the folks at Oh Wook! Productions and those working alongside their organization, including the city of Key West, have created arguably the best festival in the country, regardless of genre. Navigating a literal work stoppage of the live music industry just after the 2020 event, last year’s festival was delayed until April but a return to its traditional January dates has been set for the fifth installment (January 25-29) and the list of artists expected to join fans this year is especially impressive.
