Floydfest 2011
FloydFest, the annual music and arts festival described by one on-line reviewer as a “unicorn in a horse pasture of music festivals” celebrates it’s 10 year anniversary this July 28-31, 2011. Held in the non-commercial National Park environs of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, the event site features beautiful wooded camping, as well as hiking and bike trails. Spanning four full days, and offering 9 unique stages of entertainment, ranging from the beautifully timber framed Dreaming Creek Main and Hillholler stages to the campy ‘Pink Floyd Garden Stage’ and the homey ‘Virginia Folklife Workshop Porch,’ FloydFest spans genres and generations to truly create a “something for everybody” experience.

True to long-standing tradition, FloydFest will offer deep discount holiday ticket packages through December 31, with 4-day weekend tickets available for under $100. A limited number of special ticket packages, fittingly dubbed ‘X-spot’ packages, include early arrival, primo camping, and on-site parking. Limited number VIP tickets include backstage catering, parking, on-stage seating, pre- and after-party admission. A family-friendly event, FloydFest features a centrally-located ‘Children’s Universe,’ Healing Arts Village, Blue Ridge to Bayou Dance Tent, Sustainability programs, a Beer and Wine Garden featuring local and regional wines and microbrews, over 100 art and craft vendors, and a ‘Global Village.’
