Virginia is for Lovers

Virginia Music Festivals

Lockn' Music Festival
Lockn' Music Festival

All roads lead to Virginia during Festival season - and year round in fact. The Old Dominion has something for everyone, from the Woodstock wannabe, to the free-range flatfooter, to those with the stamina to survive the crowds, heat and security-barrier crush at a huge summer "palooza".

But the music unites all with big and small festivals alike, including the American Music Festival in Virginia Beach, Bluegrass by the Bay in Gloucester, the Hampton Jazz Festival in Hampton,  Lockn’ Festival  near Wintergreen, Appaloosa Roots Music Festival in Front Royal, and the Galax Old Fiddlers' Convention, FloydFest, and Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion in southwest Virginia.

There's some kind of music festival nearly every weekend all over the state from before Memorial day to late October, with endless accompanying food, art, history and fun.
