After two quiet years due to Covid-19, Cold Mountain Music Festival is excited to announce the Festival’s return with a lineup you won’t want to miss. The Festival will take place at beautiful Lake Logan in Canton, North Carolina on June 4, 2022.
Headlining the Saturday event is North Carolina based 2021 Grammy-nominated alt-country / indie folk band Hiss Golden Messenger. The 2022 Cold Mountain Music Festival lineup will also feature performances from Athens Georgia based indie-rockers Futurebirds, 30-year veterans of the California bay area music scene The Mother Hips, North Carolina based husband and wife fronted Chatham Rabbits (performing with a full band!), and the female fronted celtic/bluegrass sensations from Dublin, Ireland I Draw Slow. Those who choose to camp or lodge on-site for the weekend will enjoy more live music on Friday night.
Cold Mountain Music Festival has been recognized as one of the Southeast’s best goldmines for live music, outdoor recreation, and family-oriented activities. Located just outside of Asheville in one of Western North Carolina’s most pristine stretches of land, Cold Mountain Music Festival is made even better by the vibrant Pisgah National Forest as its playground and encourages exploration throughout the immersive experience. At the heart of the festival site is the glistening Lake Logan, which boasts plenty of swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and more. With performances by some of live music’s leading forces on the scene, fun vendors, and plenty of family-friendly offerings, the upcoming Cold Mountain Music Festival will offer an amazing kick-off to a summer of fun.
Proceeds from the Festival support the nonprofit ministries of Lake Logan – Retreat Center, Camp Henry, and the Outdoor School – making it possible to offer summer camp scholarships and program offerings throughout the year for every member of the family. Lake Logan’s mission is to serve Christ by welcoming all generations to experience restoration and reconciliation with God, one another, and all creation.
