LIVE OAK, Fla. — A limited number of early-bird tickets for the 2012 Wanee Music Festival will be on sale Dec. 5-Dec. 11.

The annual festival, one of the largest and most star-studded musical events in the nation, is scheduled next year for April 19-21. The lineup hasn’t been set yet, but the Wanee Festival typically draws some of music’s biggest names. Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant and his Band of Joy and the Allman Brothers Band were among the headliners of the 2011 festival, which also included performances by Widespread Panic, Ivan Neville, Rusted Root, Ween, Taj Mahal, the Steve Miller Band and more than 40 other acts.

Early-bird tickets for the 2012 festival are $165 for a three-day package. They will be available for a week at waneefestival.com and livenation.com.

The Wanee Music Festival is held each year at the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak. The park, located along the banks of the Suwanee River in north Florida, features more than 500 acres of pristine land and provides for such activities as camping, hiking, canoeing, putt-putt and regular golf, a full-service restaurant and plenty of spots for RV parking and hook-up.
