FloydFest X - An Exceptional Show!
August 2, 2011
What an awesome music festival.
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.
I 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!!!
