The wait is finally over! Your 8th Annual Festy Experience initial line-up is here, and it’s shaping up to be one of the best yet. Last year’s move to Infinity Downs Farm, the constantly improving, state-of-the-art festival site that is now home to Festy, Lockn’, and many other events throughout the year, seems like it’s going to be a great place for The Festy Experience to grow into the future.
That growth has already been manifested in a heavy-hitting first announcement, including your hosts with the most, the Infamous Stringdusters, along with Drive-By Truckers, Sam Bush Band, Travelin’ McCourys, Jerry Douglas Band, Cabinet, Billy Strings, Love Canon, Carl Anderson, and of course, The GarretGrass Gospel Hour. This is only “half” of the lineup, with the rest to be released on Wednesday, June 14.
In addition to the hours of outdoor activities, fine Virginia craft beer and food, and the general community atmosphere that everyone loves about The Festy Experience, long-time Festy-goers will be ecstatic that commemorative Klean Kanteen steel pints have returned! A staple of The Festy, they were missed last year, and the great team at The Artist Farm has listened to the people and brought them back. This is part of the festival’s commitment to environmental sustainability and used for beer purchases and water from free filling stations throughout the event.
