Great Music and Outdoor Fun at FloydFest … Plus Enter to Win Free Tickets

FloydFest is about more than just music.

The festival includes four days of camping (if you want to), beer and wine gardens, performance art, a global village, kids’ universe, craft workshops, trapeze school, disc golf, mountain biking, and yes, plenty of great live music.

This year’s lineup is incredible with a great mix of national recording artists and local talent. A few of the headliners you will not want to miss include The Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, John Butler Trio, Megan Jean & The KFB, and more.

And we want to help you attend FloydFest 12 on July 25-28.

And just like Roanoke Outside, FloydFest places a strong emphasis on the outdoors. Here's a little information you'll need to know to make sure you make the most of FloydFest’s outdoor opportunities.

  • The Outdoor Adventures tent is open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

  • Events include disc golf course, naturalist-guided hikes, river float trips, soccer, group road rides, disc golf contest, kickball, ultimate frisbee, 5K, and mountain bike time trials.
  • Other activities include paddling on the Little River, a photo scavenger hunt, and a gear giveaway.
