FloydFest X - An Exceptional Show!

August 2, 2011

What an awesome music festival. 
Rainbow at FloydFest X
It had something for everyone, as witnessed by the fact that both 
Friday and Saturday were sold 
out. The organizers have come a long way in their 10 year history. They did a great job in putting together their 10th anniversary celebration. Every year they keep making good additions to the venue, to the organization itself and to the diverse line-up of performers.
I love the festival's dedication to the arts, from the vaudeville acts to the music performers to the spiritual aspect.  Congrats guys.
Some stand out performances were of course some of the headliners like Donna the Buffalo, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Railroad Earth, Sam Bush, Old Crow 
Medicine Show and Del McCoury Band. Other standout performances were some 
of the "Under the Radar" bands like James Justin & Company, Kings of Belmont and 
the The Brand New Life. Some of my other personal favorites were Shane Pruitt 
( WOW ), Thousands of Ones and Yarn.
Performers at FloydFest XI have produced or attended 
over 300 music festivals & 
concerts and can honestly say 
that overall it does not get much better. It had all the ingredients 
of a top notch music festival including an incredible line up 
of performers, a good 
organization plan and a really 
nice venue located along the 
Blue Ridge Parkway.  Great 
Also the National Park Service Rangers did a great job 
handling the massive amount of traffic on the Parkway and deserve a Big Thank You.
I am already looking forward to next year's event and encourage all that did not make 
this year's event to put it on your calendar and try to attend. Next year's dates are 
July 26-29. Let's go!!!
