Gonerfest begain in 2005 with a festival at the Buccaneer in Memphis, featuring The King Khan & BBQ Show and King Louie One Man Band, who both had albums on Goner coming out at that time. The Black Lips tagged along, the tiny room was packed to the rafters and a great time was had by all. We have followed that festival with an amazing 16 more fests, drawing fans and bands from across the U.S. and the globe, with a surprising amount of repeat visitors from New Zealand and Australia.

This year's festival represents a return to somewhat more normal than last year's all-virtual festival, but obviously things are a big different, especially for our regular foreign guests. We're streaming the whole festival to bring it to everyone who wants to see it, and can't wait to see everyone back in Memphis as well.
