Virginia is for Lovers

Rock and Alternative

 

Rock and alternative music can be found just about anywhere in Virginia, especially at summertime weekend music events in almost every community, campground and vineyard. Virginia is home to some of the greatest rock venues and festivals. The state capital, Richmond, is home to a trendy art and music scene that celebrates a multitude of diverse talent. Large venues such as the National and the Broadberry welcome various performers of all genres. Smaller spots host creative emerging bands, musicians, and local artists. Virginia Beach presents a different style music event every weekend — and the events are usually free — at oceanfront stages along the Boardwalk. And Northern Virginia’s proximity to Washington, D.C. brings many great artists to its venues.
