From Ashes to New knows a thing or two about rising from the ashes. Founder Matt Brandyberry initially set out on a rap career. When that wasn’t panning out, he fell into a spiral.

From Ashes To New will be bringing their powerful music to the Main Stage at 12:50pm.
Alabama-bred Shallow Side has made it their mission revitalize rock & roll. How? By bringing back the energy & excitement the genre once had.
