Co-Founded by Gregg Allman, his longtime manager Michael Lehman and Live Nation, The Laid Back Festival will return to the stage Summer 2020!
Classic-rock giants STEVE MILLER and BRIAN WILSON will head the lineup of the festival, taking place at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, N.Y., Saturday, August 8th and PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, Sunday August 9th.

Named after Gregg Allman’s classic 1973 solo debut, Laid Back Festival is much more than a concert. Laid Back Festival is an event that also celebrates diverse American food and drink with regional restaurants, food trucks, breweries, wineries, and other artisans represented at each festival stop.
Previous Laid Back Festival artists include the Doobie Brothers, Bruce Hornsby and the Noise Makers, ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul with special guest Bruce Springsteen, Bernie Williams, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jason Isbell, The Marshall Tucker Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Peter Wolf, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Shovels & Rope, Brothers Osborne, Blackberry Smoke, Devon Allman, Gabriel Kelley and many more of Gregg’s friends.
The Laid Back Festival continues in the spirit of Gregg Allman and his love of music, good food, and playing music on stage with friends.
