Each stage at FloydFest provides a unique experience. Check out the description of each below from FloydFest.com:
The Dreaming Creek Main Stage is the ‘signature stage’ at FloydFest. Locally designed and constructed in partnership with Dreaming Creek Timber Frame, there is no other way or place to see a live outdoor performance.
The Streamline Stage at Hill Holler rivals the Dreaming Creek stage as a ‘fan favorite’ and sits at the base of a natural amphitheater with hillside seating and an overlooking ”craft beer loft.” Boasting its own unique woodsy aesthetic, the Hill Holler stage hosts headlining acts throughout the day and well into the night.
The Throwdown Tent is one of FloydFest’s ‘wild hairs’ — this huge covered saddle-tent (New for 2018!) will feature yoga every morning, hands-on demonstrations and workshops each day, and smokin’-hot, fast-pickin’, dance-inducing live performances each afternoon and evening. If you came to get down, head on over to the Throwdown!
Well appointed on the main field near our Dreaming Creek Main Stage, the Deschutes Brewery Libations Tent is your oasis for tweener sets and late-night live music, along with a healthy dose of lovely libations.
The Ferrum College Workshop Porch Stagedoes more than replicate the look of an old Appalachian-style porch, it is one! Recycled from a ‘local deconstruction,’ the Workshop Porch is hosted by Ferrum College and offers an intimate listening environment as well as opportunity to engage with musicians as they share songs, stories and techniques in a hosted, workshop-style environment.
The Pink Floyd Beer and Wine GardenStage is the hot-seat of fun and fabulous! What’s not to love? Relax at a table under the shade of huge beautiful oak trees with a cold craft beer, freshly mixed sangria or wine and catch your favorite newly-discovered band on this lively, funky stage, pieced together over a decade ago from the discarded steel and timber of the roller-coaster from the long-gone Lakeside amusement park in Salem, Va. Living history!
The Children’s Universe (CU) Forever Young Stage offers delightful respite from the hustle and hum of elsewhere on campus, and features acts ranging from grownups playing catchy kid tunes to very talented kids playing with adult-level aptitude. Plus, catch your favorite young ‘uns at daily open-mic sessions!
The Virginia is for Lovers VIP Pub Stage is off-limits without a backstage pass, but is no-holds-barred for those with the right credentials! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be crackin’ peanuts and sipping complimentary beverages in the shade of this comfortable lounge tent while hearing your favorite artists play old favorites and test run new material on this rustic stage just across the room.
