Two big names, Dr. Dog and The Motet, are the headliners for the Dominion Energy Riverrock festival, which will run May 15-17 on Brown’s Island and Historic Tredegar.
Dr. Dog is an indie band from Philadelphia known for hits such as “Heart It Races” and “Where’d All the Time Go?” The band is touring in support of its most recent album, “Critical Equation,” released in 2018. The band is hard to describe, but it’s been called a blend of quirky ’60s pop, fuzzy ’70s rock, pastoral folk-rock and indie rock.
Dr. Dog will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 16.
The Motet, an American funk, soul and jazz group out of Denver, released “Death or Devotion,” its ninth full-length album, in January 2019. It’s known for its funky, up-tempo performances.
The Motet will take the stage at 8 p.m. Friday, May 15.
“We are very excited to announce Dr. Dog and The Motet as headliners for a great weekend of diverse offerings and performances during Dominion Energy Riverrock,” said Stephen Lecky of Venture Richmond, an organizer of the event. “Every performer in this year’s lineup will bring energy for fans and spectators as we highlight downtown Richmond’s vibrant riverfront and outdoor adventure opportunities.”
Dominion Riverrock will showcase almost a dozen performers throughout the three-day festival. The full music lineup is listed below:
