Laid BackBY MELISSA RUGGIERI

Gregg Allman announced last week that his Laid Back Festival would play several cities this year and launch in Atlanta May 7.

Now we know who will join him at Lakewood Amphitheatre: ZZ Top, Blackberry Smoke and the Kevn Kinney Band will perform on the main Laid Back Stage (as will Allman), while Michelle Malone, Gabriel Kelley, Stonerider and Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band will be seen and heard on the second Low Country Stage.

Tickets for the fest are $32-$112 (a limited lawn four-pack is available for $100) and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 5. Tickets can be purchased via www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets and by calling 1-800-745-3000.

Food is also a highlight of Allman’s gathering and so far, local food trucks including Doc & Roc (barbecue), ATL Seafood, Kona (shaved ice), Yummi (funnel cakes and desserts), Nectar (paninis and smoothies) and Bhojanic (Indian street food) have signed on.
