Virginia’s Floydfest has revealed its initial lineup. The Blue Ridge Mountain festival is slated to begin mid-day on Wednesday, July 23 and continue through the evening of Sunday, July 27. Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, M. Lauryn Hill, Thievery Corporation, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Ray LaMontagne and more are set to perform at the event.

Each year Floydfest sets a theme to its activities (2013’s theme was “Rise and Shine”). Sticking to tradition, they have announced that 2014’s festival will follow a “Revolutionary” theme, with promoters aiming to up the ante in terms of aesthetics, environmentalism and patron safety and comfort.
