Also from the Phuzz Phest website, “Founded in 2011, Phuzz Phest is an annual music festival taking place in April at various venues across the blooming downtown area of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Our 2016 festival returns the weekend of April 15 – 16, 2016 with 50+ music acts and much more. Join the Facebook event here.

Our 2015 festival spanned April 17 – April 19, featuring our most potent and genre-spanning lineup yet with more than 60 musical acts coming from as far away as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Detroit and Australia.

In the few years of the festival’s existence, Phuzz Phest has grown in scope and notoriety to present the highest caliber national acts alongside hidden-gem locals from Winston-Salem and the greater state of NC. Though far from NC’s largest music festival, Phuzz Phest has built its reputation on keen musical curation resulting in a uniquely special weekend experience. Music lovers rejoice.”
