From the good folks at FloydFest:

And at long last, we present to you — our official FloydFest App! If you’re going to do it, do it right, right?! We think we got it right — designed for both iPhone and Android (by a talented FloydFest patron!), and in addition to ensuring you never miss a set, we now put FloydFest On-the-Rise Competition voting at your fingertips via the new App. Voting will begin July 26, and be open until midnight on August 1, 2017, so you’ll have the chance to vote at home, should you choose to go ‘unplugged’ at FloydFest. The new “FloydFest” App is now available for download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store! Download it before you arrive, as it is designed to work sans cell signal once onsite. And, find a Wi-Fi hotspot onsite for daily updates!

Cheers to Beers! There is a particular deliciousness to a cold craft libation enjoyed at one of our uniquely designed FloydFest beer gardens. This year, discover Deschutes Brewery!
