The Druid City Arts Festival (DCAF) has narrowed down an impressive list of musicians to just seven for the event, which will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 5 at Government Plaza.

"This year we selected a wide variety of music to appeal to all ages and musical tastes," said Tina Jones, director of corporate and group tourism for the Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports Commission and DCAF event chair.

The musicians truly do span all genres of music, from the Zydeco to Funk to Rock & Roll. John & Jacob will be the headlining band. The duo is relatively local; both members were born and raised in Birmingham. The men relocated to Nashville, where they were signed by Major Bob Music. The accolades have continued to roll in for the group, including a Billboard #1 song, being nominated for an MTV O-Music Award, getting a nod from Red Bull’s Sound Select and being named CMT Edge’s first unsigned "Listen Up" artist. John and Jacob will take the stage at 4 p.m. at DCAF.

The musicians will take the stage on the hour and play for approximately 40 minutes. The rest of the lineup is as follows, in this order:

11:00 a.m. - The Old Paints
11:45 p.m. – Southview Elementary Drum Ensemble
