Darius Rucker has announced the return of his music festival “Riverfront Revival” to North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. The festival will take place on Saturday, October 7, and Sunday, October 8, 2023.

Darius said, “Charleston’s hometown spirit was on full display last year and showed us what a local music festival meant to this community. We know 2023 is going to be an even greater experience for fans. We can’t wait to see you there! The 2023 lineup will be announced soon.”

Early access presale tickets are available now, with prices starting at $140 for general admission and $475 for VIPs. VIP tickets are limited.

Proceeds from each ticket sold will benefit the Arts in Healing program at the Medical University of South Carolina. Rucker has raised millions of dollars throughout his career for the hospital where his late mother was a nurse.

In November, Darius announced details on a new album that will honor his late mother, Carolyn. Darius said, “At the end of the day, I’m really still just Carolyn’s Boy.” Carolyn’s Boy is the title of the new album project planned for 2023, along with the meaningful cover image, a portrait of his late mother, Carolyn. Rucker continued, “I wanted to name the record Carolyn’s Boy because Mom never got to see any of my success. She died before any of this happened, so it’s just another homage to the greatest woman I’ve ever known.”

    Darius Rucker is definitely country music’s most passionate NFL football fan. He famously said that he has two seasons, “football season and waiting for football season.” A lifelong Miami Dolphins fan, he often sings that National Anthem at their games and did so this past September 2021 when the Dolphins played the Buffalo Bills. When he fronted Hootie and The Blowfish, he wrote the band’s biggest song, “I Only Want To Be With You,” in college when he was so upset that his Dolphins were losing, he started to cry, and his mother called him a baby. Rucker also has his own line of NFL wear.
