Gen Con 2016: The Way Down Wanderers to Headline Georgia St. Tapping Party

The Way Down WanderersSave the date for the kick-off of the best Gen Con yet at the Georgia Street festivities on Wednesday, August 3 at 6 pm with Sun King Brewing! The Official Gen Con 2016 beer, 20-Sided Rye, will tap live that evening with more entertainment to be announced soon. To attend the Tapping Party, you must be over 21 years of age. Live music will begin at 6 pm with the headliner, The Way Down Wanderers, in the Gen Con Georgia Street Pavilion.

Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, this five-piece Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draws listeners in with energy, originality, and soulful generosity. Playing, performing, and writing together for two years, the Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following. The band’s debut EP, “Path to Follow” and their brand new live EP, “Wellspring” are available wherever music is sold. The band’s first full-length album, produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, TX, is scheduled to release on July 15. International Song Writing Competition finalist, “Dead Birds,” is available on Spotify and iTunes.

Entrance to Georgia Street is free and open to the public. The beer garden is open to those ages 21+.

  • Is the Interactive Intelligence an official GenCon event you can sign up for? If so, is it free or does it cost generics? And what time in the evening does it start? I love the unofficial events as well, but I don’t want to miss out if it’s official and sold out.

    • I’m honestly not sure. We’ll find out more closer to the convention. I think it’s unofficial since it’s taking place out near the beer garden which you don’t need a pass to get in to.

  • I forgot to mention. You’ll get more attendees if you tag this #GenCon without the space. That’s what everyone else is following.
