Here is a quick report from FloydFest 2011, with many more to come throughout the weekend.
Greetings from the beautiful Shenandoah Parkway, in Floyd, Virginia, site of the 10th annual Floydfest festival!
This is the biggest festival I’ve ever been to. There are 11 individual stages with a dizzying menu of bands, performers and workshops from today through Sunday night.
According to festival organizers, they are within a couple hundred tickets of selling out. They expect over 14,000 festivarians each day. [UPDATE: Friday and Saturday are now sold out.]
The lineup includes bluegrass greats such as Tony Rice, The David Grisman Sextet, the Del McCoury Band, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge. It’s going to be an amazing experience and we can’t wait to send updates for those of you who weren’t able to make it this weekend.
Off to see Trampled by Turtles (who are trying out materials slated for a new release) and then Old Crow Medicine Show.
Pictures and more later today!
