Relix Theater is bringing local musicians together this weekend for a good cause.

The fourth annual Waynestock celebration kicked off Thursday in the Happy Holler neighborhood of Knoxville.

All proceeds go to the E.M. Jellinek Center, a non-profit treatment facility for addicts.

The music festival runs through Saturday featuring all local music. Waynestock was started four years ago in honor of Wayne Bledsoe's son Drew, who passed away in 2010.

Bledsoe hopes the festival can keep memories of other deceased musicians alive.

"We wanted to do the same thing for Phil Pollard's family when we lost Phil because it had been so meaningful to me and my family and to have something with Andrew's name still on it, it means a lot, and hopefully it will go on forever," he said.

If you would like to donate to the E.M. Jellinek Foundation but can't attend Waynestock, you can do so at http://waynestock.org.
