Chantilly Farm Bluegrass Festival and HoosierDevil announce collaboration

Maggie Rainwater, the new owner of HoosierDevil, has announced a new collaboration with the Chantilly Farm Bluegrass & BBQ Festival in Floyd, VA.

The festival, hosting its 9th event this May, brings huge crowds of bluegrass lovers into the tiny community of Floyd each spring. Chantilly Farms also serves as the home festival for Junior Sisk, who performs both nights on stage, just a short drive from his homeplace in nearby Ferrum.

Sisk says that he loves the atmosphere, and the great customer service the organizers provide.

“It has always been a true honor to call this my home festival. Each year they put together a great lineup, and the festival really strives to create a great experience for every single person that comes through the gate. That’s not something you see at every event you attend.”

The new relationship with HoosierDevil finds them partnering on the promotional and publicity side. Rainwater, who knows a thing or two about bluegrass events through her grandfather, Jody Rainwater of Flatt & Scruggs fame, says it’s one of her favorites.

“Chantilly Farm’s Bluegrass and BBQ Festival is an event I look forward to every year, and I could not be happier for HoosierDevil to have the opportunity to work alongside the Chantilly Farm team. Chantilly treats everyone at the event – staff, volunteers, bands, guests – like family, and the positive, laid-back atmosphere they have cultivated at Bluegrass and BBQ is something truly special. When you combine such good vibes with a beautiful location, a variety of curated vendors, and a stellar lineup featuring the best in bluegrass, old-time, and mountain music, you have a recipe for a spectacular event. I believe the sky is the limit for Chantilly Farm and their Bluegrass and BBQ Festival, and HoosierDevil is delighted to be part of it!”
