Across-the-Way Productions is thrilled to announce stellar new additions to the already bursting at the seams artist line-up and array of outdoor adventures for FloydFest 12. Becoming known as the ‘Shangri-La of the East’, FloydFest is set to be the premiere music, outdoor, and art festival of the Southeast taking place on July 25-28, 2013.
Driven to be the best music festival experience of our time, FloydFest is committed to selling a limited quantity of tickets to the highest quality event experience, bar none, celebrating music, art, and life in an intimate visually stunning environment.
New additions to this year’s FloydFest artist line-up include: The Hackensaw Boys, Babba Seth, Yancarlos Sanchez, and OTR (On the Rise) artists The Whetherman, The Floorboards, Option 22, The Royal Tinfoil, and The No BS! Brass Band!
Far more than a music festival, FloydFest offers patrons not only a harmonious experience in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, but a 4-day opportunity to enjoy a magnitude of pleasantries the beautiful area has to offer. A fresh new offering for 2013 is the Belcher Mountain Beat Down. Through a partnership with Pembroke, VA-based Tangent Outdoors and the Moonstompers Bike Club, FloydFest is offering a guided mountain bike tour that descends the Blue Ridge and finishes with miles of hand-built single-track trail. The 16-mile route includes 1700’ elevation gain and 3500’ of descending. If water is more of your thing, cool down with a float on the Little River. Through a partnership with On the Water, there are five opportunities to escape to the water for few hours of paddling down a gorgeous, undeveloped stretch of the Little River. Trips are limited so be sure to sign up in advance. Check out full details on all FloydFest outdoor adventures here.
A mystic experience with boundless opportunities, FloydFest also offers over 100 performing artists on 10 stages, with over 100 artisans, specialty craft beverages, a Healing Arts Village and Children’s Universe with an extensive children’s area. Festival goers can enjoy an intimate performance on the rustic and Appalachian-influenced Virginia Folklife Workshop Porch. Afterwards they can attend a nearby panel discussion on sustainable practices that engage the audience onlookers and includes renowned speakers and activists, headlining artists, and festival promoters. Rejuvenate and relax by joining in a belly dancing or hula dancing workshop, take a nap in an ENO hammock at the hammock lounge, or experience an incredible massage. Possibilities for festival bliss are endless!
