After a great first run in Nashville last year, the Southern Ground Music and Food Festival will return to Music City September 27-28, 2013. Of course, Zac Brown Band will be back with a host of friends from country music and other genres to make this year's sensory experience even better.

This year, ZBB will close both nights of the festival by performing with special guests including Kenny Chesney, John Fogerty, Jason Mraz and more. Plus, country newcomer Kacey Musgraves, Eli Young Band and Willie Nelson and the Family Band will be on hand to wow festival attendees.

In addition to award-winning country acts, the festival will include performances by a few indie groups, including the Head and the Heart, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

The two-day festival will take place outdoors on the lawn of Nashville's Riverfront Park. With great music in the foreground and the city skyline lighting up the background, the event is sure to be impressive.

In order to make the festival a fully sensory experience, VIP tickets include a gourmet meal prepared by a team of renowned chefs under the helm of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin.

Two-day festival passes start at $99. Gates open at 2pm CT on Friday and at 12pm CT on Saturday. For more information, click here.
