'The Revivalists' kick off Festival concerts tonight

| July 28, 2022 1:00 AM

Come and get into the groove as The Festival at Sandpoint kicks off its summer music series today.

Opening the 2022 season is alternative-rock band The Revivalists and they're sure to get the crowd dancing and set the mood for summer fun and music for the rest of the Festival's two-week run.

A chart-topping rock band, The Revivalists were known as a hard-working group that delivered fun and good music when their now platinum-selling single "Wish I Knew You" took off. The single set a record for most single-week spins ever at Alternative Radio and becoming a mainstream phenomenon spending nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100.

Now, their new hit songs from fourth studio album "Take Good Care", including #1 Triple A and Top 5 alternative single "All My Friends," and the No. 1 Triple A and Top 15 alternative hit single "Change" (their third Mediabase Triple A #1 in a row) - have become instant fan favorites and are adding to their more than 410 million total streams.

They have opened for the Rolling Stones, were nominated for a Billboard Music Award and two iHeartRadio Music Awards, were named Billboard's Top New Rock Artist of 2017, and between sold-out shows at their biggest venues yet, including Beacon Theatre and Red Rocks, the band has also ignited festival stages at Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Lollapalooza, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Outside Lands, and Pilgrimage.

Renowned for their live firepower, soulful alt-rock anthems, and their distinct mix of many of the classic styles of American music, the eight-piece ensemble of pedal steel guitar, unique two-drummer set-up, horns, and more is led by the incredible voice of front man David Shaw.

Tickets are available at The tickets are general admission and are $54.95 before fees and taxes. The gates open at 6 p.m. and music starts at 7:30 p.m.

The rest of the week's lineup includes Chris Janson on Friday, Mt. Joy on Saturday, and Pink Martini with China Forbes on Sunday.
