AMJAM: Schedule announced and single day passes now available

Also: Bela Fleck & Keller Williams get extra sets!
The 2nd Annual Asheville Music Jamboree has just announced a handful of artist additions to their already diverse line-up featuring National touring heavy-hitters, Gov't Mule to Grammy Award Winning roots reggae pioneer, Burning Spear and some of the southeast's top regional talent. AmJam will run as scheduled Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-25, 2008. Stage schedules are available here.

In addition to over 30 musical acts on two stages, AmJam plans to entertain its guest through an assortment of activities including workshops, drum circles, parades, swimmng, outdoor contests, intimate campground performances, a craft village and festival-style fine dining. AmJam extends invitations to families (young children included) with open arms and will provide a number of family friendly events such as the Kid's Parade and the Children's Universe activity center. Habitat for Humanity will be in attendance along with HeadCount, a non-profit connecting potential voters through live music and events.

AmJam's mission is to create an event that mirrors the true spirit of Asheville with its picturesque scenery, unbridled talent and limitless hospitality, which has captured the hearts of poets, painters, princes and paupers! People have been drawn to Deerfields from across the map, sharing their talents and ideas to create a cultural tapestry that is enormously rich in diversity and unrivaled beauty.

The Deerfield's Amphitheater is located 20 minutes south of Asheville in the Mills River Community. The 940-acre family-owned tract of uninhabited wilderness offers camping, swimming and hiking. Tent camping will be plentiful, with a secluded family campground set aside. Car camping and RV passes are also available at an additional cost. Only 3,000 tickets will be sold to this year's AmJam. Tickets are currently on sale, with an allotment of Early Birds available at $125 for a limited time. After the Early Bird sale, tickets will be $140 in advance or $160 at the gate. Kids 13 and under are free and teens (13-16) can purchase tickets at half off.
