FloydFest has detailed the first phase of the lineup for its upcoming gathering at its new location named FestivalPark in Check, Va., scheduled for July 26 through 30, 2023. The upcoming gathering is set to welcome nearly 100 artists on six stages, including headliners The Black Crowes, My Morning Jacket, Sheryl Crow and Goose, who will usher in the gathering now touted as “FloydFest 23~Forever.”
The announcement of the genre-defying lineup includes a collaboration between country artist Shooter Jennings and rapper Yelawolf, rising jambands Eggy and Neighbor, Boston’s Ripe, the reggaeton Floridians The Hip Abduction, the singer-songwriter Elle King and more.
“For this year’s program, I wanted to ensure that the quality FloydFest is known for remains true and endearing to the thousands who flock to our unforgettable experience on the mountain,” said FloydFest producer and founder Kris Hodges in a press release. “By bringing in some of the nation’s best rock, country, jam and Americana artists, FloydFest continues to be ‘Forever’ making strides in the industry … and beyond. Our new location and next level experience will be sure to tantalize all senses and awaken the spirit in all who attend.”
The five-day gathering will also welcome the likes of Atlin Gün, Nikki Lane, Ian Noe, The Wilder Blue, Palmyra, and the next round of lineup additions is expected to arrive on Nov. 15.
“Our endgame has always been to become the gold-standard example of a ‘boutique’ festival, and now, with a new home, and with the stated goal to park and camp each-and-every patron on one site — eradicating the need for offsite lots and offsite shuttles — our dream is manifesting into reality. We are grateful, we are energized, we are inspired — and we’re doing this for our patrons,” added the chief operating officer of FloydFest and Across-the-Way Productions Sam Calhoun. “What we have created as a festival and family over the past two decades+ has blossomed into a year-round, indelible intention and lifestyle. Our renewed mission is to sustain this family for years and years to come. What we have curated and originated is bigger than each of us, and it deserves to go on ‘Forever.’”
