After canceling the 2020 and 2021 High Water Festival due to the pandemic, event organizers announced Wednesday plans for a 2022 festival.

The event will take place over two days April 23-24, returning to North Charleston’s Riverfront Park on the bank of the Cooper River. Though no line-up has been announced yet, the fest’s Instagram announcement posts promises an exciting mix of artists to “make up for lost time.”

Curated by Charleston-based folk duo Shovels & Rope, the 2020 line-up included artists like Wilco, Brittany Howard, Drive-By Truckers and She Returns From War, leaving many fans wondering which big-name artists and local favorites will return in 2022.

Tickets are not yet available for pre-sale and no information has been announced about other auxiliary events like the annual “Pass the Peas” dinner and 2020’s Lowcountry Boil from The Smoking Pot.

A month earlier, Riverfront Park is also hosting the Charleston Wine and Food Festival’s Culinary Village, shifting the event’s signature attraction out of downtown and into the fast-growing area around the former Navy shipyard.
