Local News

For 17 years through rain and shine, thousands of people have flocked to Floydfest to see an eclectic mix of rock, bluegrass, folk and reggae music.

The event showcased over a hundred musicians across nine stages – not to mention art, beer gardens, and shops at every corner. 

“We’ve learned what works and what doesn’t work and we love to reinvent the wheel with a lot of new art installations and new ideas for programming,”said event organizer and COO of Crossway Productions Sam Calhoun. “On top of that, patrons were really receptive to what we did and some of the bands that we discovered over the weekend together as a community were just very exceptional.”

Besides great music, what really keeps people coming back year after year is the people. 

“We really come for the music and then the camaraderie,” said attendee Mark Gamble. “There’s probably 30 or 40 people camping with us so just everyone being together having a great time. It was awesome.”
