FloydFest: Music, Mountain Biking, spectacles of Performance Art

Melding a music festival with a weekend of outdoors activity and camping has been FloydFest’s calling card since its founding in 2002. This year’s four-day event, July 25-28, 2013, in the Appalachians outside of Floyd, Va., will be no different, including 100+ acts with up to 15,000 attendees per day.

Scenes from FloydFest

Beyond the music scene that anchors the weekend, you can camp, climb, run, bike, hike, and generally get into nature with like-minded folks. The event is family friendly and has designated camping zones to keep the peace (the parties are out of earshot from there).

It’s a wild weekend any way you go. Music highlights this year include Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, The Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, John Butler Trio, Brandi Carlile, Citizen Cope, Yonder Mountain String Band. . . and much more. Check out all the event details here. Below are a few images from the FloydFest scene. —Stephen Regenold
