Set to take place October 10th – 13th in Nelson County, VA, The Festy is held at Devils Backbone Brewing Company.
The Festy’s vision as an earthy fall-flavored Experience in the Blue Ridge Mountains comes to fruition in this idyllic, intimate natural setting near the band’s home base of Charlottesville, Virginia.
In addition to a carefully-curated lineup of bands, The Festy’s emphasis on “experience” brings to life a variety of outdoor activities including the popular Blue Ridge Burn (a 5k/10k trail race, this year winding through campground trails newly built by ‘Dusters member Travis Book), tasty locally-sourced food vendors, and international award winning microbrews on tap throughout the festival. In line with the band’s commitment to the environment, there is not a single plastic cup to be found at The Festy; a reusable pint-sized Klean Kanteen cup is included in each Festy camping pass.
