Word is out! The 7th Annual Festy Experience will take place at Nelson County Preserve in Arrington, Virginia, on October 7-9, 2016.
The 350+ acre estate also serves as home to LOCKN’ Festival, and is located just under a half hour from The Festy’s original coordinates at Devils Backbone Brewing Company. Rather than following LOCKN’s suit in using the horse track as the main stage area, The Festy’s musical focal points will be the renowned Blue Ridge Bowl and The Woods stages formerly constructed for LOCKN’s side acts, with the festival grounds also including the Infinity Downs, The High Field & Forest Camping, and The Green Field. This well-established and expansive property will give way to much more capacity for Festy goers, who experienced a sold out event with a total of 4,000 attendees at The Festy’s 6th year in 2015.
The Festy Experience has assured that this change in location will not, however, stir the atmosphere that has driven its fan loyalty in the past years. Known for its crimson Blue Ridge Mountain sunsets, the family friendly community of Nelson County, and endless musical talent, The Festy inspires a spirit, soul and togetherness that can only be found in the rural mountains of Virginia.
Also ringing true to its identity, The Festy has confirmed that the Infamous Stringdusters will host three sets over the weekend, including a special Ladies & Gentlemen set in honor of their latest album.
Much more is to come in terms of lineup, so stay tuned! Visit The Festy’s website for more information.
