From the same team that brought you last year’s successful Campfire Outdoor Adventure & Music Festival in Lakewood, PA, comes the new and highly anticipated Campfest- a three-day music celebration that recreates the magic of childhood summer camp. Held from September 18th to 20th at beautiful Camp Blue Ridge, nestled within 250 acres of the Blue Ridge Mountains and within two hours of Atlanta and Asheville, Campfest creates a memorable and exhilarating experience by providing outdoor recreation and competitions alongside incredible musical performances.

Campfest is thrilled to announce Cold War Kids and Hey Rosetta! as its headliners on a lineup including Langhorne Slim, The Whigs, and a carefully crafted array of  more national, regional and local acts to be revealed soon. In addition to the main stage area, there will also be a beach stage that attendees can enjoy while lounging by a heated pool, as well as pop up and late night performances throughout the camp all weekend long.

"We're thrilled to partner with Camp Blue Ridge as we continue to fine tune the summer camp festival concept! Blue Ridge's state-of-the art facilities and commitment to excellence ensure a smooth and fun event from start to finish for all our campers. This time around we're also focusing on truly integrating music into the camp activities, like pop up performances during kickball tournaments and more. We can’t wait to meet all our campers this year!"

“After seeing the overwhelming success of hosting mud adventure races onsite with just local bands, we know the awesome potential we have with a stellar lineup and non-stop camp activities all weekend. We’re excited to be a part of a festival that is the first of it’s kind in the Southeast – with the mountains as a backdrop to the music and activities, who wouldn’t want to be at Campfest?”

By embracing the summer camp attitude of making new friends, connecting with nature and being exposed to arts and recreation, guests have the opportunity to escape from their daily lives and reconnect with the joy and possibilities of childhood. Campers relax, compete, interact, and leave re-energized basking in the glow of new friends and memories.

Campers can win points all weekend for doing absolutely anything and be crowned king and queen of Campfest by: rock climbing, best zip line scream, 5K, best kickball costume, relays and obstacles, tennis, not-so-5k, low ropes course, hiking, high diving, blob bounce, and having an awesome time amongst other “shenanigans.” Camp Blue Ridge is a fully equipped summer camp that allows for all the same activities attendees enjoyed as children as well as fresh and creative ones.

Campfest has numerous accommodation options including shared and private cabins, and general admission camping in three beautiful locations throughout the camp- Beach, Mountain and Field of Dreams. There will also be weekend passes available for guests to attend the event, stay offsite and take advantage of the many hotels and other accommodations in the surrounding area.

Three-day early bird tickets are on sale now for $49 for a limited time only. Three-day VIP passes are available for $250, and all guests that wish to stay on site must purchase a $75 camping pass or a cabin starting at $250 per person. All campers will have the option to buy into a camp meal plan that will provide four meals throughout the weekend. There will also be weekend passes available for guests to attend the event, stay offsite and take advantage of the many hotels and other accommodations in the surrounding area.
