The bands will play alongside nearly 90 barbecue teams serving mouth-watering BBQ and vying for title of Grand Champion.
“We began working on this lineup before Hogs 2019 ended last year, and we are beyond excited to announce it. With so many Grammy award-winning and nominated artists on our stages, this is undoubtably the most acclaimed Hogs lineup yet,” said Becker Hall, co-founder and chief executive officer of Hogs for the Cause. “This year we can’t wait to host crowds from across the country and show them what Hogs is all about.”
Hogs for the Cause is an organization that unites barbecue culture nationwide to provide aid to families while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer. Hogs for the Cause has given over 1,000 direct grants to families in need and has made financial contributions to children’s hospitals in New Orleans, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Atlanta.
A limited amount of specially-priced, $45 two-day, general admission tickets will go on sale December 13 at 10 a.m. Regular priced tickets will go on sale afterwards.
“Each year our event grows, bringing in more people and more fundraising teams, which in turn increases the grant money we are able to disperse,” said Rene Louapre, co-founder and chief operating officer. “When this started 12 years ago, we never dreamt we would help over 1000 families in need. It is a testament to the real generosity of our teams and attendees. We cannot thank them enough.”
