Simchock Festival season is officially here, and it's time to start planning out your summer activities. While Bonnaroo always gets the attention of tens of thousands of music fans in the Southeast (and beyond), with "Roo" now in our rear-view mirrors, it's time to look ahead to a noteworthy event in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, namely, FloydFest.

Once again, Across-the-Way Productions is serving up a respectable FloydFest line-up of established artists, a few on the cusp of stardom, and a nice helping of emerging bands that aren't too far behind.  Top-tier artists such as Grace Potter, Emmylou Harris, and Drive-by Truckers lead the FloydFest schedule (with Brandi Carlile making yet another return to the Dreaming Creek Main Stage), with a long list of other notables mixed in.  CLICK HERE to see who else is performing at FloydFest.  CLICK HERE for the daily schedule.

Access to the picturesque festival grounds is literally from the Blue Ridge Parkway, with comfortable, shaded camping (and glamping) found throughout the site, along with a multitude of stages including the stunning, hand-crafted Dreaming Creek and Hill Holler stages. Of course, there is much more to FloydFest than "music". Check out the festival website for information on other activities, including Outdoor Adventure, Family Fun and Workshops & Panels.

There are a range of ticket packages to suit all budgets and creature-comfort needs. Festival new-comers and veterans alike are encouraged to check out the FloydFest website for information and updates.  The organizers are also very active on social media, so be sure to follow them on Facebook for real-time developments as well as special promotions.

Ticket prices increase starting July 1st, and increase even further at the gate, so be sure to get yourself organized soon. Front Row Focus will see y'all there!
