The most influential festival from the 90’s is making a comeback. Well-known for its jam bands and local exposure, the H.O.R.D.E festival is back.
Originating from 1992, Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere, better known as H.O.R.D.E., was designed to help create a vision of widespread improvisation and a new found love for ‘jam’ music.
Following its predecessors such as Lollapalooza Festival, H.O.R.D.E had a wildly successful stream of tours for 7 years coming to an end in 1998; until now.
Robert Randolph has announced to Radio.com that he will be bringing the popular 90’s festival back this fall.
“We’re in the process of re-branding the H.O.R.D.E. tour. We’ll be bringing that out with a group of bands and artists that the fans will really enjoy. We’ve got Trombone Shorty and John Fogerty and Gary Clark Jr., we’re gonna invite Blues Traveler out since it was their original idea back in the early ’90s.”
Randolph explained when asked about his plans for the return of H.O.R.D.E.
Randolph discussed ideas for the upcoming festival when announcing tour dates for his upcoming album Lickety Split due out on July 16th.
The H.O.R.D.E. festival will be making its debut with 6 to7 upcoming dates with more to follow in the spring and summer of 2014.
