The three thousand or so music fans who packed the nTelos Wireless Pavilion in Charlottesville on Saturday night for Blue Ridge Mountain Sports’ 40th birthday party – which featured music from Sarah White, Sons of Bills, and The Infamous Stringdusters – got a bit of an extra treat:  the initial line up announcement for The Festy Experience, the hottest new festival in the Southeast.

Hosted by The Infamous Stringdusters, and taking place on the grounds of The Devil’s Backbone Brewery in Nelson County, Virginia, The Festy offers festivarians a nexus of killer music, outdoor sport and lifestyle, hetty organic eats, and great beer.

Rubblebucket
Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers

More bands will be announced in the near future, so stay tuned.  From this initial offering, though, it is readily apparent that The Festy is not a musical experience to be missed.  Tickets for the festival, which takes place between October 5th and 7th this year, go on sale Wednesday, May 16th.  Surf over to www.thefesty.com for ticket buying information!
