Michael Allenby, Founder of The Festy Experience describes that...“The Festy has always demonstrated creativity with the lineup...but this year we decided to look back at all of the years of surveys and give the audience exactly what they’ve wanted.  And not just with the lineup.  We have simplified many aspects of the event to appeal to our core fans.  The Festy attendees have been investing into the event for years and it’s time they see a return on that investment.”

Throughout the event's eight-year history, The Festy team has produced a festival illustrating its core values including  a love of craft food & beer, appreciation for the outdoors, and stellar musical lineup. A family-friendly atmosphere is key; along with a large kids zone and family activities.  With acres of meadows and miles of trails, The Festy Experience is crafting a full weekend of outdoor activities that will include the 23nd Annual Blue Ridge Burn (5k/10k trail run).

Daily artist lineup also revealed. Weekend and single-day tickets are both on sale now...and start as low ast $36 plus fees.  And The Festy will continue to provide a variety of camping options.  And Kids under 12 are FREE.
