FUV's Thanksgiving tradition continues with The WFUV Feastival. It seems like we have more live music on FUV every year — from our Studio A sessions, Marquee shows and our "Summer of FUV" festival coverage — so our Thanksgiving feast of shows keeps getting bigger too.

It's been a big year of live music on FUV, with our first-ever live coverage of the Clearwater Festival and a return to Celebrate Brooklyn for three exclusive broadcasts. Add those festivals to an already long list of FUV Live events, including SXSW, Newport Folk Festival, CMJ and shows at venues around New York City, and it's no wonder our WFUV Feastival tradition can't be contained to just Thanksgiving Day.
From multi-stage festivals to venues around NYC, there was so much live music on FUV in the last year, that the WFUV Feastival of shows will once again stretch beyond Thanksgiving. Plus, we're looking forward to more amazing performances at this year's Holiday Cheer for FUV.
The WFUV Feastival is a chance to hear a lot of great live music from the past year, and this year's "feast" is our biggest yet—running this Thursday and Friday. Check out the full schedule below, including archive links and another WFUV Thanksgiving Day tradition: Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" at Noon. Then on Friday at 10am, we have a Holiday Cheer for FUV preview with Shawn Colvin, recorded live at City Winery (and you'll get to hear the encore with Emmylou Harris that didn't air the first time).
