Mile 0 Fest 2022: Preview and Instagram Takeover Artists

Mile 0 Fest 2022 kicks off next week…

Mile 0 Fest returns for its fifth installment, January 25 – January 29, in Key West, Florida. One of the absolute best festivals available to fans of red dirt and Americana music, Mile 0 Fest has rocketed its way into the top echelon of events with stellar lineups, unique experiences, and an amazing setting, all thanks to a relentless work ethic of those behind the scenes. This year’s edition boasts another amazing lineup with over 60 artists performing 100-plus shows in just over four days and there’s no indication things will be slowing down anytime soon.

There’s a handful of first-time artists that are definitely expected to make an impression, including 49 Winchester, Ryan Bingham, Ryan Culwell, The Red Clay Strays, Grady Spencer and the Work, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, Zac Wilkerson, Justin Clyde Williams, and Channing Wilson. Impactful returning performers include North Carolina’s own American Aquarium – Chance and the Takers, John Fullbright, Lucas Jagneaux and the Roadshow, Shane Smith and the Saints, RC and the Ambers, Morgan Wade, Reckless Kelly, and the Topo Chico Cowboys (Josh Grider and Drew Kennedy). In addition, the backbone of Mile 0 Fest – Mike and the Moonpies, Cody Canada, Wade Bowen, Walt Wilkins, Jason Eady, Courtney Patton, and Jamie Lin Wilson continue to impress each and every year.

This year, RedDirtNC is excited to partner with five of those performers throughout the event in order to give fans, both in attendance and elsewhere, a truly unique perspective. Make sure you’re following all of our social media (FacebookTwitterInstagram – RedDirtNC) but especially Instagram next Tuesday – Saturday (January 25 – January 29) for what promises to be some entertaining and fun content!
