FLOYD, Va. — On the heels of MerleFest’s initial lineup announcement comes one from FloydFest. “Fire on the Mountain,” otherwise known as FloydFest 14, will return to the 170.5 milepost of Blue Ridge Parkway on July 22 to 26, 2015, with a renaissance of thick, rich newgrass, Americana and rock, according to organizers.
The 2015 initial line-up includes Leftover Salmon, Drive-By Truckers, Lord Huron, Shovels and Rope, Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush Band and Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers. More acts will be announced in the coming months. Visit http://floydfest.com/ to learn more and take advantage of early bird ticket prices.
