What does Soulive deem appropriate to celebrate their ten years in music, this year’s launch of their new record label, Royal Family Records, and the release of a new album, Up There? The band is hosting a one-day festival, named The Royal Family Get Down,& with some of their closest fiends on Saturday, September 12 at the Pines Theatre at Look Park in Northampton.

"Soulive has always wanted to host our own festival and bring together some of the artists who we’ve grown with over the years," says Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno. "With this year’s Royal Family Get Down we have a lot to celebrate and we’re lucky to have such a great line up and a venue that we love in the Pines Theater."

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Charlie Hunter Trio, and Nigel Hall will all perform at the inaugural festival. Soulive has invited John Scofield, who will join the band during their festival closing performance. More artists will be announced in the coming months. The Pines Theatre, an outdoor venue known for its cozy setup and its scenic surroundings, will be a magical setting for the festival that, coincidentally, will also serve Magic Hat Brewing Company’s fall line of brews.

Tickets for The Royal Family Get Down are now though Lawn seating is priced at $32.50, while reserved seats are $40. VIP packages are also available for $75 and include a signed poster of the event, reserved seating, a CD copy of the performances and, last but not least, a backstage pass to meet the band.

Soulive will release its new album, Up Here, on Tuesday, July 7.
