Darius Rucker has partnered with one of the Southeast’s leading entertainment agencies, SRE Entertainment, to fulfill his longtime dream of bringing a unique music festival to his beloved hometown of Charleston, S.C. Set to take place Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9 at North Charleston’s beautiful Riverfront Park, the family-friendly Riverfront Revival music festival presented by Discover South Carolina will feature curated offerings of the Lowcountry’s best food, libations, art and culture along with music performances mixing the best of country and rock.
In addition to a headlining performance from Rucker himself, the two days of entertainment will also include performances by Brothers Osborne, Trampled By Turtles, Jimmie Allen, Charley Crockett, SUSTO and more across two stages from 1-11 p.m. daily.
“Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Charleston,” shares Rucker. “For years now, I’ve had this bucket list dream of bringing together a bunch of friends to perform in a way that also showcases this incredible city and all it has to offer. I can’t wait to see it become a reality this fall – and I hope the fans are as excited as we are!”
“Riverfront Revival will be the perfect culmination of feel-good music across genres set against the beautiful backdrop of the Cooper River,” adds SRE Entertainment Partner Rob Lamble. “We’re thrilled to bring a new fall music tradition to the Holy City, and are honored to be doing so with Darius Rucker and his team.”
“Darius is a home-grown star with a genuine love for his state, making him an incredible ambassador for South Carolina,” notes Duane Parrish, Director of the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism. “We are all looking forward to celebrating South Carolina’s Lowcountry and welcoming thousands of visitors to this one-of-kind music festival in October.”
General admission tickets start at $124.50 per person (plus fees), with payment plans starting at just $25 down. VIP tickets start at $399.50 per person (plus fees), with payment plans starting at $50 down. VIP ticket holders will have access to a dedicated entrance lane, priority viewing areas at both stages, VIP lounge areas, premium restrooms, a dedicated bar and more.
Part of Rucker’s passion for his hometown includes an innate desire to give back to the community, instilled by his late mother who was a nurse at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). He has raised millions of dollars for the hospital throughout his career and will continue to do so via Riverfront Revival, with $1 of each ticket sold supporting the MUSC Arts in Healing program. MUSC’s board-certified and registered Arts in Healing therapists work with children and adults to identify, explore and transform emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual difficulties through Clinical Art and Music Therapy.
“There is a national children’s mental health crisis and South Carolina is no exception,” shares Mark Scheurer, M.D., Chief, Children’s & Women’s Integrated Center of Clinical Excellence at MUSC. “The MUSC Arts in Healing program provides a safe and tangible method for our patients and families to address underlying fears, anxieties and concerns in the clinical environment. The joy and healing the therapy team helps create is possible because of our community and philanthropic-minded people like Mr. Rucker.”
