I caught this late yesterday but just not getting around to posting the news update from the 23rd Annual . The lineup hit the wires yesterday with Phil & Friends, Gov’t Mule, and Bela Fleck all sitting at the top with plenty more yet to be announced. It’s a doozy for fans of the Haynes and Friends style uber jam that lasts hours and hours into the Asheville night.

It looks like the pre-sale tickets have already sold-out but the general on-sale info is below; make sure you stay on @xmasjam for the latest info if you’re following the fest and we’ll keep the updates coming as we get them.
