** ORIGINAL STORY (May 24, 2018)
Comedian Dave Chappelle is ready to rip down the barn in Yellow Springs, again.
Tickets went on sale on Thursday, May 24, 2018, for Dave Chappelle’s Juke Joint in Yellow Springs and sold out within 15 minutes.
Few details are on DavesJukeJoint.com for the party to feature D-Nice and Fred Yonnet and The Band With No Name.
Tickets went for $100 for the baler area (premium admission), $70 for the homestead area (general admission) and $25 for the barn yard (lawn only).
D-Nice posted about it on his fan page promising “the best musical experiences of your life.”
Chappelle had his first Juke Joint in Yellow Springs in 2015. He has since had similar bashes all around the country.
By all accounts, it was a party to remember the last time Chappelle, who lives near Yellow Springs, threw a two-day Juke Joint in October 2016 at the Barn On Whitehall Farms/ Tecumeh Land Trust, 4625 US 68 in Yellow Springs.
In 2016, both parties sold out, and a who's who of nationally known celebrities showed up to party down.
Local residents danced the house down with a list of celebs that included rappers, Talib Kweli and Q-Tip, CBS News' Gayle King, actor Bradley Cooper, model/actress Naomi Campbell, comedian Donnell Rawlings and magician David Blaine.
Act fast if you want to see who shows up for yourself this time.
